Top RINO Susan Collins to leave the Senate?

Top RINO Susan Collins to leave the Senate?

Speculation regarding a potential Collins gubernatorial run had swirled for months.

Collins made her long-awaited announcement at a Friday, Oct. 13 breakfast meeting of the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce held at the Samoset Resort.

She says while she would love being in ME full-time where most of her family and friends are, she can do the most good for Mainers and the nation by staying in the U.S. Senate.

She would join a crowded field in the race for governor to replace two-term Republican Gov. Paul LePage, who can not run again because of term limits. "And I would try to heal the state and bring people back together, which I think is important as well".

Collins has been a pivotal vote in the Senate this year on defeating Republican attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Like President Donald Trump, LePage has been a polarizing leader.




She then addressed the "elephant in the room", and said that she feels as though she will be best able to serve the people of ME by remaining in the Senate, which was met with a standing ovation from the crowd.

She said that she will remain in the U.S. Senate.

Republicans are now trying for a sweeping rewrite of the nation's tax laws, which many of them hope will wash away some of the deep anger in the party after the health-care failure.

Collins grew up in Caribou, in far northern Maine. Though she lost that race, she said she was still drawn to the ability of a governor to have a direct and immediate effect on people's lives by creating jobs and spurring economic development. If she were to win, the governor at the time that she resigns her Senate seat would have the authority to appoint a successor to serve until next regular general election - November 2019.

Collins has won her four Senate contests by an average margin of 20 percentage points by drawing support across the political spectrum. For all his successes, though, LePage is known for his bombastic leadership style.
