(CNN)Sen. Susan Collins declined last week to back President Donald Trump for reelection, saying she would focus on her own race while suggesting that she only picked sides in 2016 because she was not on the ballot.
"I was not up for reelection," the Maine Republican told reporters, referring to the 2016 race, when she publicly voiced her opposition to Trump's presidential campaign. "I didn't have my own race to worry about at that point." But a dozen years ago, as she was running for reelection, Collins endorsed Republican Sen. John McCain over then-Sen. Barack Obama. She served as a co-chairwoman for the McCain campaign in Maine and said she would be "glad" to have her friend campaign for her. At a debate in her 2008 Senate race, she argued that it was "typical for the leading officeholders to chair the campaign of whichever member of your party is running for President."

not a surprise
And nobody primaried this RINO bitch?
Good move on her part. The liberals in Maine don’t need another reason to turn up on election day to vote against her.
CNN having orgasms again....
Lots of deep state in Maine. Goes way back.
Is she a recipient of Soros donations?
She’s a disgusting creature.
Bitch. Must. Pay.
The only way she can be re elected.
Do we want a (D) in there instead ?
We have a D there.
She is possessed by John McCains demon.
“We have a D there.”
Except when counting senate votes..............
Not exactly a Profile in Courage.
You’re right. Her Republican seat is hanging buy a thread. We HAVE to keep the Senate.
She sucks, but this is a strategic move.
saying she would focus on her own race while suggesting that she only picked sides in 2016 because she was not on the ballot.
so you don’t support a president of your own party, if you yourself are also running for reelection that year??? what the heck???
Wow, she’s a real profile in courage, isn’t she????
Good move on her part. The liberals in Maine dont need another reason to turn up on election day to vote against her.
Sadly, I have to agree with you. And well need her vote in the Senate to replace the 2 and possibly three Supreme Court Justices that will likely leave in Trumps second term.
Susan Collins is a genuine gold plated RINO. She is the weakest of reeds. I honestly don’t know of anything useful she’s ever done while in office. And, she is a weasel.
I can hold my nose and tolerate a RINO from Maine. But there is no excuse for a squish from Utah (Romney) or Texas (Cornyn).
