Crowdfunding campaign against Susan Collins surges after senator says she’ll confirm Kavanaugh
Susan Collins, a Republican senator from Maine, announced Friday in a long-winded, tone-deaf speech that she’d vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The decision may be the biggest mistake of her political career.
Before she announced her support, a crowdfunding campaign to unseat Collins in 2020 should she vote for Kavanaugh had already reached $1.8 million. Soon after she began defending Kavanaugh in her speech, the website crashed due to a high level of traffic. Liz Jaff, co-director of the “Be a Hero” campaign, confirmed the incident in a tweet.
Too much traffic for the page @Crowdpac is down but will be back up shortly and then you can show your rage and donate!
