Kavanaugh opposition, Collins lobbying down to wire in Maine

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – Opponents of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are taking their calls for Maine Sen. Susan Collins to reject the nominee down to the final minute.

Kavanaugh faces a key procedural vote in the Senate on Friday, and Collins holds a key swing vote. The vote’s scheduled for 10:30 a.m. The Maine Council of Churches is holding a news conference in Portland to oppose Kavanaugh at 10:30 a.m. as well.

Other demonstrations are planned in the state. Some demonstrators had gathered in Portland’s Monument Square before 9 a.m. on Friday.

Collins, a moderate Republican, has not indicated how she might vote.

A report from the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University said Maine is the top state in the nation for television ad spending related to Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
