Nail In Coffin? Facing Toughest Race Yet, Collins Forced To Answer For Kavanaugh Vote

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Susan Collins’ purported centrist credentials have relied in part on her stance as an advocate of reproductive rights. That sort of positioning works well in Maine. But, with her vote for Kavanaugh, Collins lost endorsements that could prove detrimental to her reelection.

During the nomination fight, Sen. Susan Collins (R) bought into now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Roe v. Wade hedging, publicly asserting she believed Kavanaugh when he said he respected precedent.

But in dissenting with the decision issued on Monday regarding a Louisiana law restricting access to abortion, Kavanaugh stood against the four-year-old precedent the court established on a similar case in Texas.

The usually aggressive Collins press operation didn’t issue a statement until late in the day Monday. And what was released merely attempted to spit-shine Kavanaugh’s role in the ruling. Collins said that she agreed with the ruling and contended that it didn’t portend anything for “whether abortion would remain legal.” Kavanaugh, Collins said, “gave no indication in his dissenting opinion that he supports overturning Roe.”

In reality, Kavanaugh’s dissent fit squarely with a possibility many abortion advocates feared — that states would be allowed to pass more and more restrictions and these would ultimately limit access to abortion.

17. Time for Susan to leave politics and get a job. One that is in harmony with

her ability, such as, shoveling heads and guts in fish processing plant.
