Collins will make up her mind based on the merits of the nomination.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, speaks with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh at her office, before a private meeting on Capitol Hill in Washington, Aug. 21, 2018.

"And anybody who thinks these tactics would work on Senator Collins obviously doesn't know her", spokeswoman Annie Clark said in a statement. Her office also provided The Associated Press with other examples of calls and letters containing vulgar insults.

Activists in ME have raised more than $1 million dollars in an crowdfunded effort to get Sen. Members of the group have met with Collins over the past 18 months on issues such as protecting the state's young immigrants known as Dreamers.

Nishikori - the first Japanese man to reach a US Open semifinal in the Open era - was a finalist in NY in 2014. A big challenge, as well, because I've been fighting with many, many problems to get to this moment.

"The people of ME are asking you to be a hero, Senator Collins", reads the campaign's description. Making an endorsement contingent on a vote is not just kosher, it's a wide practice among all sorts of interest groups, as is threatening opposition over it. Making it explicitly about cash while the money is in hand, however, might cross a line. Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions.

"President Trump's nominee for the high court told lawmakers during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Roe v. Wade set an "important precedent" in 1973 before being "reaffirmed many times", but the MA lawmaker isn't letting up on her "#StopKavanaugh" activism.

Here's the catch: money pledged to the effort will be refunded if Collins votes against Kanavaugh.

Sen. Collins vows she won't be persuaded by the campaign to impact her vote, amid an ongoing crowdfunding scheme against her, TheBlaze reported on Tuesday.

"We won't let it stifle us". "And her safety has relied on her having a lot of strength with independent and Democratic women". "Kavanaugh, it does so in the shadow of the last day of the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing, with strikingly different depictions of the appeals court judge on display". Murkowski is pro-choice in a generally anti-choice party, and abortion rights activists have been hoping to pressure her into voting against Kavanaugh. The same shout-and-arrest pattern continued throughout the week. The president during campaign stops in Montana and North Dakota ridiculed Democrats as "making fools out of themselves". Pro-choice activists have reportedly sent Collins, who is one of the very few pro-choice Republicans, about 3,000 coat hangers, a reference to the risky and potentially fatal illegal abortions women were forced to seek out or self-perform pre- Roe v. Wade.
