Maine People's Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership are joining dying father, Ady Barkan, to beg Senator Collins to vote "no" on Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

In the next 2 weeks, right after Labor Day - the Senate will hold a confirmation vote that will define the Supreme Court's ideology for decades. It will be one of the most pivotal votes of Susan Collin's career.

"We, the People of Maine are joining Ady Barkan and thousands of others to demand  that Senator Collins votes "no" on Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh" - Marie Follayttar, Co-Director of MFAL said, “We're excited to once again join with Ady to promote and amplify Maine voices."

There are two scenarios:

  1. Senator Collins votes NO on Kavanaugh and you will not be charged, and no money will go to fund her future opponent. 
  2. Senator Collins votes YES on Kavanaugh and your pledge will go to her opponent's campaign, once that opponent has been identified.

The people of Maine want to be clear with you, Senator Collins:

The pending nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice is a threat to everyday Mainers like us. Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions. He is committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. Kavanaugh cannot be nominated - he would mean bankruptcy and danger for millions of families in Maine and America.

The people of Maine are asking you to be a hero, Senator Collins.

Your swing vote could decide whether a rubber stamp for Trump’s anti-healthcare, anti-woman, anti-labor agenda gets confirmed to the Supreme Court–costing millions of Americans their healthcare, their right to choose, and their lives.

If you fail to stand up for the people of Maine and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020.  We will get you out of office. 

The people of Maine have made it clear that they want you to vote NO on Kavanaugh, and we’re counting on you to do the right thing.

You have the chance to stand up for the people of Maine – and for the entire country – by rejecting this Supreme Court nominee. Side with us  and make the right choice.


*** We need Senator Collins to vote NO on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. You can send a stronger message than a phone call or a tweet – pledge to help get Susan Collins out of office in 2020 if she doesn’t stand with us. 

Your card will only be charged if Collins votes for Kavanaugh’s confirmation. ***

  • endorsed

    “Kavanaugh is not the only judge out there. How about we nominate and appoint someone who's reputation is not stained by a sexual scandal, who doesn't live in the era when women were considered property to make decisions for and about, and who is not ashamed of his own views to answer questions during the Senate hearings?”

  • endorsed

    “Money talks in this world of politics, and even though I hate it, until we have publicly funded elections those of us who advocate it have to use the same tactics as the "funders" of our politicians. Join this effort to require that our Supreme Court nomination process be sincere and thorough.”

  • endorsed

    “Kavanaugh’s appointment is a life-long one. The American people deserve a justice who represents all of our interests, not just the rich white male ones.”
