Planned Parenthood endorses challenger to Sen. Susan Collins

Planned Parenthood on Tuesday endorsed a Democratic challenger to Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, saying Collins “turned her back” on women and citing her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court as well as other judicial nominees who oppose abortion.

Sara Gideon, speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, welcomed the endorsement from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

“There’s never been a more important time to stand up for reproductive rights,” she said, in the face of "systematic attacks on reproductive rights across the country.

Collins, who was honored by Planned Parenthood as recently as 2017 as “an outspoken champion for women’s health," is facing perhaps the toughest reelection fight of her career.

3. If there's one senator I want gone it's Collins

She just pisses me off with her phony, "I'm so concerned - see how furrowed my brow is?" act that she plays until it's time to roll over for Mitch. Best explanation is that she was bitten by a radioactive Jeff Flake before he retired.
