Sara Gideon Wins Nomination to Challenge Susan Collins in Maine


“Senator Collins has changed, and Mainers deserve better,” Ms. Gideon added. Millions of dollars have flooded the race and the airwaves in Maine, with Ms. Gideon raising $23 million from both voters in Maine and national Democratic donors eager to flip the seat and secure control of the Senate. (Because organizers vowed to return the donations if Ms. Collins voted against his confirmation, the senator has condemned the money as a bribe seeking to influence an official act.) “Meantime, Speaker Gideon is about to take $4 million from people who tried to buy Senator Collins’s vote. But Senator Collins can’t be bribed — and she remains solely focused on providing assistance to cities, towns, small businesses, and workers who need her help now more than ever.”
