One of the world's most successful professional dog mushers is speaking out against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

All but two of 51 Republican senators either have announced their backing for Kavanaugh or are widely expected to do so in the coming days or weeks. Rather, if she votes against Kavanaugh, the GoFundMe campaign will refund all the donations to those who contributed.

Collins is one of the two Republican senators representing blue states, and most likely to "flip" against Kavanaugh.

"I think it demonstrates the new lows to which the judge's opponents have stooped", she added.

That doesn't sound like someone who is impressed by the Democrats' disgusting antics. "If I vote for him, the money is given to my opponent for the 2020 race.... this effort will not influence my vote at all".

President Trump's choice to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week to answer a variety of questions about his judicial views and record. But if Manchin voted against Kavanaugh, Morrissey would no doubt use that issue against him in attack ads. Although Obama won IN in 2008, the state is heavily Republican. "Your swing vote could decide whether a rubber stamp for Trump's anti-healthcare, anti-woman, anti-labor agenda gets confirmed to the Supreme Court-costing millions of Americans their healthcare, their right to choose, and their lives".

Susan Collins of ME and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski back abortion rights, which could be threatened if a socially conservative five-seat majority were cemented on the Supreme Court. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has doubled down on her claim that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh believes all birth control counts as "abortion-inducing" drugs.

While a few observers have taken his answers to mean that "Roe and Casey are going nowhere", Kavanaugh's pro-life supporters and pro-abortion foes both argue his non-committal answers were phrased to navigate a narrowly-divided Senate, and that he ultimately would vote to overturn Roe. "But what we have seen provides reason enough to vote against this nominee".
