Maine knows who she is

July 29th, 2020 – The Lincoln Project today released a new video, “Trump Stooge,” holding Senator Susan Collins (T) Maine accountable for her consistent capitulation to the Trump administration and failure to hold the President accountable.

Collins has become infamous for voicing empty criticism of Trump alongside statements that he will somehow, eventually, transform into a noble and responsible leader.

“Susan Collins doesn’t live up to what Maine expects or deserves,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “Maine is waking up to who she is and her inability to lead. For the first time in her Senate career, she should be concerned.”

When moments of challenge arrive, Susan Collins worries. Collins is no longer a Republican nor a conservative. She’s a Trumpist.

Republicans believe in a strong foreign policy. Trump and Collins do not. Republicans believe in individual liberty, states’ rights and the 10th Amendment. Trump and Collins do not. Republicans don’t believe in excessive use of federal power. Trump does, and Collins silently ‘worries.’

Defeating Trump means defeating his network of enablers as well. Come November 3rd, it’s time for Senator Collins to go.
