For the past several months, Maine People's Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership partnered with dying father Ady Barkan of Be a Hero to beg Senator Collins to vote "no" on Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.


Senator Collins betrayed the public trust when she voted in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.


The people of Maine have been clear with you, Senator Collins: the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Justice is a threat to all Mainers. Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions. He is committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. His confirmation poses a danger for millions of families in Maine and across America.


Senator, your deciding vote was a rubber-stamp for Trump’s anti-healthcare, anti-woman, anti-environment and anti-labor agenda.


For failing to stand up for the people of Maine and ignoring the voices of your constituents, and for endangering the lives of millions of Americans, we will work to elect a new senator to represent the State of Maine. 

Every dollar donated to this campaign will be used to fund your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020.  Mainers deserve a senator who will fight for a country that works for all of us.

    “I endorse Susan Collins' opponent because she cares more about her senate seat and the Republican Party than she cares about women, regardless of their political party.”

  • endorsed

    “We need elected officials with backbone,not just clinging to coattails,out of fear of not being re-elected!”

  • endorsed

    “I support primary challenges to all establishment politicians on principle. Policies supported by the majority of Americans should always be on the table, regardless of whether existing politicians like them.”

  • endorsed

    “Susan Collins is some kind of bizarre sociopathic media-seeking hypocrite. She hems and haws, wrings her hands in some kind of fake "concern," she extracts political concessions for her vote, and then she shows she was a "safe" Republican sellout all along. Maine: rise up!”

    “As Maine goes, so goes the Nation.”

  • endorsed

    “She pretended to want to have the Senate act as more of a check on Trump's worst pronouncements, but caved in entirely to McConnell and Trump without really doing anything.”

  • endorsed

    “Collins pretends to be a moderate voice, staying in the news cycles, waiting until the last moment to vote with all the other conservatives and her mentor, Donald Trump. She needs to go.”

    “Because I LOATH Susan Collins”

  • endorsed

    “Her political star has fallen down the rabbit hole of Trump's dark and hollow American abyss. Between her votes for the tax cuts, and Kavanaugh, she decided to carelessly discard the future of Maine's girls and women. Her Kavanaugh vote was delusional, and her long meandering speech was proof. She knew her vote was wrong. She put her faith in a questionable character, for the rest of our lives, instead of all the girls yet to be born. It was an awful display of irrational and dystopian reasoning. Clearly, her past support for women's rights has been an expedient sham. Oh my goodness, what a disappointment. Please use my donation to work for a true and brave advocate for women and the middle class. Thank you.”

    “I am a transplant from MA to ME and was furious with her support for Kavanaugh, as well as caving on tax reform. ABC - Anyone But Collins.”

Please ask 5 other people to pledge to this campaign!

We have 110 pledges so far in just the last hour an a half! This means if each of you asked 5 other folks to pledge we would reach our 550 pledges and be half way to our goal TODAY. 

Please keep it coming - this will help us get on the media, and get this campaign in front of Collins. It's time to push hard and show that there are serious ramifications to her actions.

    “Susan Collins failed to uphold her oath of office, by not properly investigating a credible allegation of SEXUAL ASSAULT against a judge seeking Senate approval, before confirming him. This is egregious behaviour from a woman that should know better. You don't deserve to be a US Senator.”

  • endorsed

    “I believe Senator Susan Collins represents the interests of a handful of wealthy people, not those of her constituents. I believe it’s time for new representatives in Congress and the Senate who reflect the views of progressive women and men and are willing to work together for a better world. I believe we should replace Senator Collins.”

    “The only thing worse than not voting in times of worsening habitual problems is voting for a habitual politicians. They are not professional because the do no speak (fess) words to take up forward (pro). If they do any fessing, they should fess up a confessional. Habitual politicians are the original habitual offenders from which all others grow. When politicians make good policies then the polity in the polis will be polite without police.”

    “Susan Collins has lied to the people of Maine since I moved here over 20 years ago. She is on tape saying, 'I will only serve for two terms.' and yet here we are. I have followed her votes for years and see a defined pattern of her saying she is weighing the options and then inadvertenly voting across party lines. She represents the Republican Party and not Maine. I'm done with her and her brand of politicians. Honestly, I'd prefer another Independent and not a DNC supported Democrat, however, like my vote for Hilary, I will vote for anyone going up against her.”
