Democrats angry over Republican Sen. Susan Collins' vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are champing at the bit to unseat her and there's a crowd-sourced nest egg awaiting her challenger. But so far, no big-name Democrats have formally announced they'll challenge Collins, in 2020. Gideon is among Democrats who've stated interest in running for the seat. (AP Photo/Robert F.

Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D. CA), in support of Sara Gideon’s (D. ME) U.S. Senate campaign:

Sara Gideon (D. ME)

I’m about to ask you to contribute to Sara Gideon’s campaign to defeat Susan Collins. But first, let me explain why this race is so important.

Maine is one of the most flippable Senate seats in the country. If Democrats are going to take back the majority and start making real progress on the issues we all care about, then we have to win this seat.

Senator Collins has been a consistent partisan voice for President Trump and Mitch McConnell in the Senate. She voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh in the Supreme Court along strict party lines.

It’s time to replace her in the Senate — and the best person for the job is Sara Gideon. That’s why I’m asking you personally:

Pitch in to give Sara Gideon the resources she needs to go head to head with Senator Collins and win!

I’m doing everything I can to help Sara Gideon beat back Republicans’ attacks and turn Maine Blue because I need her fighting alongside me in the Senate.

Sara’s leadership and fighting spirit are exactly what it will take to oust McConnell and get the Senate working for everyone. She is a true champion for women and working people across this country.

So please, if you’re able, chip in to Sara’s campaign at the link below:

U.S. Senator from California
