Collins votes against Barrett, heads home to save Senate job
On Monday, Collins cast her vote against Trump’s pick without any speech and quickly headed home to Maine to try to save her political career. Her vote in favor of Kavanaugh rallied Democrats against her and angered some moderate supporters, while her vote against Barrett may not do much to win them back. She's also attacking Collins’ vote for Trump's tax cuts that she says favored the rich over working-class Mainers. Collins said she voted against Barrett out of fairness to Democrats, who were denied an election-year vote on then-President Barack Obama’s nominee in 2016. And she’s a Republican,” Lauper told the crowd as she walked Collins to the center of the stage.
