  • ASSOCIATED PRESS           Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine departs after the confirmation vote of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh today

"This is a classic quid-pro-quo as defined in our bribery laws", Collins said in the interview.

The Press Herald reports that Fugelsang's declaration has struck a chord with his followers who are following suit, including the owner of a Texas restaurant chain who said he is moving his seafood orders to neighboring New England states. It was very unfair to the judge, and now I can very nicely say, Justice Kavanaugh. She said ME needs "someone who's not entrenched in the old way of doing things".

"She said that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, which is even more insulting than saying that she gave a very credible account".

Protestor Valerie Walker says, "What Susan Collins is doing is affecting me and my house, people personally in their homes and so we've taken to coming to her house because she won't communicate with us, she won't meet with us". Strimling said he's is not.

"We're taking back Maine's Senate seat, and claiming it for someone who knows how to listen to her constituents", tweeted Mainers for Accountable Leadership, which organized protests at Collins' office.

But then, she heard Kavanaugh's rebuttal. Obama was considering nominating Rice to lead the State Department during his second term, but she withdrew her nomination after she became embroiled in the controversy over American deaths at a diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

According to lawyer Sandra Lundy, who lives in neighboring MA, she is not only boycotting the state - she is actively campaigning for others to join her. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Collins is a "top priority" when he was asked today if she could be targeted by Democrats in 2020.

Man in custody following threats tied to Van Dyke trial, police say
If Van Dyke had to serve six for each of the 16 counts and do so one sentence after another that would add up to 96 years. The woman said other officers had encountered McDonald that night and "they didn't feel the need to use deadly force".

The former Obama aide's connection to ME has already emerged as a central issue. Susan Collins (R-Maine, shown above left) defending her vote for the nominee, which outraged Sen.

"I mean, that is so devastating, and I think he reacted with anger and anguish as a father of two young girls, a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old", the Maine Republican said.

Diane Russell, a Democratic activist, said Collins voted to "betray ME women and ME survivors" by ignoring their stories.

Rice also said her family "goes back generations" in ME and that she's owned a home in the state for the last 20 years. Rice's grandfather, David Augustus Dickson, worked as a shipper, porter and janitor. Rice received an honorary degree form the Bowdoin College this year.

Of those Republicans who voted in his favor, Fallon concluded, "this will be a career-defining decision they will never live down".

Upon her arrival in her home state, the newspaper reported, "Police escorted her off the flight separate from other passengers after it landed at Bangor International Airport, avoiding about 20 protesters at the airport terminal".
