In an earlier post I cited evidence that Collins was a pretty solid “yes” vote on SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
… On Tuesday, Susan Collins, of Maine, one of the few G.O.P. senators whom Democrats had been hopeful of picking off, released a statement that lauded Kavanaugh’s credentials. Another Democratic target, Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, also indicated that she was comfortable with Trump’s choice.
Sure enough, Joan McCarter at the Daily Kos tells us that Susan Collins abandons all pretense of carefully considering her Supreme Court vote. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has just demonstrated that she’s a Trump and McConnell Republican, through and through.
