Susan Collins has announced her decision whether or not to support the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
In a stunning announcement on the floor of the Senate, Collins announced she would vote “yes” on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.
In her statement, Collins praised Kavanaugh’s record and reputation, and said the allegations of sexual assault against him were uncorroborated. She said whomever leaked Dr. Christine Ford’s identity to the media should be ashamed for using her pain for political gain.
Susan Collins was one of a handful of swing votes who held out announcing a decision on the nomination. Earlier in the day, Collins voted to end debate and move forward to a final vote.
In the minutes ahead of her announcement, a large crowd of protesters gathered outside of Collins’ office, sang songs, and yelled for Collins to oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Earlier in the day, Sen. Jeff Flake announced his intention to vote for Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
