Want to help kick Susan Collins (R-Maine) out of the Senate?
Susan Collins voted to appoint Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court even after he was credibly accused of sexual assault and lacked the temperament expected of a justice of the highest court in the country. In recent years, she has voted with McConnell at least 90% of the time. Need more reasons to motivate you to kick her out of the Senate? Suit Up Maine has a full website dedicated to the effort, and lists 15 reasons why she should leave the Senate.
On top of it all, Collins currently has an approval rating of only 35%. Back in mid-October 53% of Mainers wanted to impeach Trump, while only 45% did not. Her seat is ripe for flipping.
Sara Gideon, the current Speaker of the the Maine state House of Representatives, won the Democratic primary and will be facing Collins in November.
Now, a little truth talk. In 2014, Collins won her re-election campaign with 67% of the vote. Despite her low approval ratings right now, kicking a longtime incumbent out of her seat is not going to be easy. It’ll take a lot of us working together to make sure Sara Gideon flips this seat.
Here’s 4 ways you can help propel the Democrats to a win:
1. Support Sara Gideon’s campaign. You can make a donation HERE. This is important because Mitch McConnell is pouring money into the state in an effort to save this seat. Sign up to volunteer HERE. Follow her on Twitter HERE and amplify her messages.
2. Help with voter registration drives in the state. As one idea, share Rock the Vote’s voter registration page for Maine (HERE) on your social media pages.
3. Support the Maine Democratic party. Donate to them, ask them how you can help with voter registration drives, or boosting the number of volunteers they have to help with campaigns.
4. Support Maine’s League of Women Voters. They organize voter registration drives and have events to inform and connect voters with the candidates.
If you have other ideas of how we can make sure Sara Gideon wins this seat, particularly for folks outside the state, please let us know in the comments. Thanks!
