For Immediate Release

December 18, 2019

Washington, D.C. –Today, J.B. Poersch, president of Senate Majority PAC, released the following statement on Senator Susan Collins’ announcement that she will run for re-election for a fifth term:

“The longer that Senator Collins stays in Washington, the clearer it becomes who she is fighting for: the same party bosses and conservative special interests that are propping up her campaign,” said Poersch. “Senator Collins has plenty of explaining to do, whether it’s her record of voting to gut Medicare eight times, or handing out tax breaks to wealthy billionaires while refusing to hold a public town hall with Mainers. It’s no wonder that Senator Collins’ support among Mainers has cratered while many of her prominent backers have abandoned her. Maine voters of every political stripe are energized and ready to replace her next November.”
