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. ***

    “Kavanaugh has been hand-picked to overturn Roe v. Wade, to shield Trump from prosecution, to further undermine the rights of employees, consumers, and average Americans and to further disenfranchise voters. He represents the judicial speartip of the radical right-wing oligarchical assault on democracy in the United States.”

We're almost at $500k so we're going for gold

We’ve raised nearly $500,000 in pledges in just a few shorts weeks -- but Senator Susan Collins STILL won’t commit to rejecting  Kavanaugh. So we’re taking things up a notch, and setting a NEW goal:

According to the latest fundraising reports, Senator Collins has $1,302,388 in her campaign bank account. So we’re going to match that, and raise $1,302,388 in pledges to support her future Democratic opponent if she votes to confirm Kavanaugh.

This is going to be an enormous undertaking, but with so much at stake, it’s absolutely necessary. Senator Collins needs to know that Mainers will be able to unseat her if she votes to confirm Kavanaugh, and the only way to do that is to match her funding, dollar for dollar, so that it’s clear that her eventual opponent has the support to win.

This is our opportunity to show strength to Collins ahead of the vote -- we hope we can count on you to step up and help us make this happen by pledging and sharing this campaign. Thank you for all of your support so far.

-- Ady, Amy, and Marie
