Oh Jeez: Susan Collins May Need More Hearings to Vote for Kavanaugh
At Thursday hearings, Lindsey Graham went into beast mode. In a rant that, besides blasting the Democrats, I'm sure was targeted at the four swing votes in his party. It may have fallen on deaf ears for Susan Collins.
Yes, the same Susan Collins whose staff was threatened by the same leftists supporting the dirty politics against Kavanaugh.
Collins, sources said, did not indicate how she would vote. But her private concerns underscore how Kavanaugh faces a critical test Thursday: He must reassure at least three key GOP senators that he did not act improperly towards women in the 1980s when he testifies after one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford. He can't afford to lose more than one GOP senator if all Democrats vote against his nomination.
At the meeting of Republican chairmen, GOP leaders tried to reassure Collins, keenly aware of the critical role she plays.
But it was made clear to senators inside the meeting that the most recent allegation had resonated with the Maine moderate in a way that others up to that point had not.
Get it together, Collins. Time for a little adulting.
