Flanked by Two Republican Women Senators, Susan Collins Announces Support for Brett Kavanaugh

In a floor speech on Capitol Hill on Friday, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) announced she would vote “yes” on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a move that all but seals his fate as the next United States Supreme Court Justice.


In a speech that touched on her "little 'believees'" about Kavanaugh’s judicial record—including her steadfast opinion that he will not vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, despite having somehow garnered a seal of approval from the Federalist Society—Collins declared (with her words, not her actions) that she believes survivors before announcing she “will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”

Collins said Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation against Kavanaugh doesn’t even meet the threshold "more likely than not.”
