Senator Collins Will Stay in DC Swamp

Oct 14, 2017

Senator Susan Collins of Maine will stay in the DC swamp and keep dividing a “divided and troubled Washington.” Collins had been considering a run for the governorship of Maine. In her announcement clarifying her political future, Collins said, “The challenges we face today are enormous – from frustrated families with stagnant wages and expensive health care to a nuclear-armed North Korea and Russian interference in the very fabric of our democracy, our elections." “Collins concluded ‘that the best way that I can contribute to these priorities is to remain a member of the United States Senate.’” She bragged about her ability to cross the aisle, “build coalitions,” and “listen to the people of [Maine] and my country.” Mitch McConnell congratulated Collins saying that “she brings conviction, smarts and leadership to every issue.” Collins is a moderate politician who has worked actively to undermine conservatives in Congress.
