Democratic 'dark money' group targets Sen. Collins

Maine Momentum has reserved $722,000 worth of advertising through early January to 'educate' voters about Maine's senior senator as she heads into a reelection year.


Fifteen months before Election Day, a new dark money group is buying at least $722,000 worth of television time across Maine to make it tougher for U.S. Sen. Susan Collins to win reelection to a fifth term as Maine’s senior senator.

Maine Momentum, a nonprofit that doesn’t have to disclose its donors, has purchased more than 4,000 advertising slots on a number of stations to air commercials aimed at educating or questioning the Republican senator through early January.

Advertising Analytics tallied up $722,000 in planned advertising buys by the group. It appears, though, that there may be more spots lined up that weren’t counted.

While it cannot by law endorse candidates for elected office, Maine Momentum is allowed to run informational advertising that is one-sided and clearly helpful to Democrats who hope to send Collins packing in what it shaping up to be one of the costliest and most divisive Senate races in the country.

2. Disgraceful that she can even run for a 6th term. 30 years is enough.

4. Rightfully so!

She is as much of a CON artist as the majority of the GOP. Starting with the grifter in the WH.

Her grift is "finding the pea under the shell" now you see it now you don't where oh where will it be.

Or in her case where or where will I land with my vote when it counts the most for me. Screw the rest of you losers!

5. Wasn't it Grassley who was going to protect Collins even if he had to raise money?

If memory serves me he referred to this at the time as blackmail. My theory is out of State American donations are because Americans are tired of Collins smirk, lies and denials.
