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.

Mainers for Accountable Leadership are joining our campaign!

We have wonderful news,

Mainers for Accountable Leadership are joining our campaign! 

I met with them a few weeks ago when the Be A Hero team went to visit Senator Collins in her home state to plead with her not to vote for Kavanaugh. 

She has to understand that her constituents want her to vote NO. 

This isn't about outside influence. The people of Maine are running this campaign.  Starting Monday Mainers for Accountable Leadership will be holding phone banks to call through voters in Maine to ensure that IF Collins votes for Kavanaugh they will be ready to take her on!! The pledges you've made so far are helping them send a strong message to Senator Collins that they mean business.

"Maine people are speaking out and saying a vote for Kavanaugh is intolerable. We're building momentum every day, and Susan Collins needs to respect the fact that Maine lives are at stake, and we will hold her accountable,” said Marie Follayttar, Co-Director of MFAL. “We're excited to once again join with Ady to promote and amplify Maine voices."

Please lets keep up this momentum and pledge to this campaign, share this campaign and support the good people of Maine. 


- In solidarity - Ady
