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.

    “Because she repeatedly votes down the line with the worst Republican behavior. I draw the line when she would not even vote to ensure a fair hearing to proceed in the Senate on the impeachment of the President. We need Senators who are willing to stand up to their party when the party gets it wrong. She needs to go!!!”

Collins made it official.

It’s official. 

Susan Collins just announced that she is officially running for re-election in 2020. She wants to keep her seat. With your help, we won’t let her. 

But unseating her won’t be easy. She will enter the race with an $8.6 million re-election war chest and she’s already running statewide television ads portraying herself as an independent, bipartisan senator.

Can you pitch in $20.20 to our campaign to tell the truth about her record and reach thousands of voters in Maine? We need to raise $5,000 today to get started.

It’s critical in these first 24 hours that we show that we are fired up to defeat Susan Collins. With your help, we can make sure every Mainer remembers the moment she betrayed us by voting to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. We will expose her for what she is – a right wing supporter of Trump and his agenda.

Your support – of our movement, of our democracy – has revealed Susan Collins for who she is, and now we need to double down and come out the gates in 2020 stronger than ever. 

We need everyone pitching in whatever they can if we’re going to win. That’s why we're asking you to make a $20.20 donation to our campaign to expose the truth.

It’s critical we have a strong start today if we want our momentum to continue through the election.

We’ve raised over $4 million for her future opponent – but we need to launch a massive campaign right now to tell the truth about Susan Collins. The more funds we have, the more people we can reach.

All of our work since she voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh has led us to this moment. Because of us, this seat is now up for grabs. 

Let’s take it.
