"PORTLAND (WGME) – There is mounting pressure on Senator Susan Collins from Mainers opposing the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Senator Susan Collins calls it bribery.
More than $1 million has already been pledged online, from 42,000 people, many of them Mainers, who oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination.
"This campaign is a demonstration of how strongly Mainers feel about the threat that Brett Kavanaugh would pose on the Supreme Court," Amy Halsted of the Maine People’s Alliance said.
"Lincoln County Indivisible," a Midcoast group, paid $6,000 for full page ads in three newspapers, calling for Senator Collins to stand by her word not to support a nominee who showed hostility to Roe v. Wade.
"We’re here today to deliver one of them to Senator Collins so that she can see that we are really, really trying to reach her to say no on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh," Kate Josephs of Lincoln County Indivisible said.
An hour later, letters from concerned Mainers and clergy were delivered to the senator, opposing Kavanaugh over fears he will end healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions."
