Democrats wresting control of the US Senate from the Republicans will be immensely important in the coming election. Senator Elizabeth Warren's campaign for President is investing resources to help defeat Susan Collins of Maine, most recently famous for her support of putting an accused sexual abuser on the Supreme Court.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) presidential campaign is putting resources into Maine, where it hopes to help unseat Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in one of the most high-profile Senate races of this cycle.
A new memo sent to supporters on Tuesday from Warren's campaign manager Roger Lau details a series of investments on state directors and organizers for states that vote and caucus in March. The campaign, Lau writes, is devoting these resources not just to boost Warren ahead of primary voting but to assist Democrats in marquee Senate, House, and state legislative contests in 2020. Among the target list Lau offered was Maine, where Collins is facing a number of potential Democratic challengers including Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon.
