Sen. Susan Collins already facing post-Kavanaugh wave of potential Dem challengers

Sen. Susan Collins already facing post-Kavanaugh wave of potential Dem challengers

Republican Sen. Susan Collins, with her impassioned floor speech and critical vote in support of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, has in a matter of days become one of Democrats’ top political targets for the next election cycle.

A half-dozen Democrats, most of them women, already have emerged to voice interest in running against the Maine senator in 2020 – even as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vows to fight to protect her seat.

Collins, in turn, called into question Rice’s ties to Maine.

Sara Gideon, speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, wrote on Facebook that she will consider a bid after the midterm elections.

Other Democratic prospects include Emily Cain, two-time congressional candidate in Maine; Rep. Chellie Pingree; and Hannah Pingree, former Maine House speaker and Chellie Pingree’s daughter.
