Friday morning, President Trump tweeted “there is a nasty rumor out there that @SenatorCollins of Maine will not be supporting our great United States Supreme Court Nominee.”
He added “well, she didn’t support Healthcare or my opening up 5000 square miles of Ocean to Maine, so why should this be any different. Not worth the work!”
Collins has continued to maintain that she will not vote to confirm Barrett.
“It’s no comment on her, it’s a comment on the process of rushing through a nomination in such a short time before a presidential election,” Collins has said.
Lisa Murkowski is another Republican Senator who did not like the process, but unlike Collins, has not said how she will vote.
