Three weeks ago, Maine Republican Susan Collins was the darling of those opposing Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation. The campaign has raised more than $3.5 million and counting.
Today's vote for Kavanaugh was 50-48. It did not mention the sexual misconduct claims against him that emerged in the past month - claims Kavanaugh has denied.
Collins' Alaska colleague, Sen.
Interest in the Republican senator's re-election two years from now has been intense since her controversial vote and complicates her path to a fifth term, with half a dozen Democratic prospects openly considering running against her.
Ms Ford alleges Mr Kavanaugh drunkenly attempted to rape her while his friend, Mark Judge, stood by and watched during a 1982 gathering. Manchin told The Associated Press last weekend that he followed Collins' lead. However, Collins maintained that "we have a presumption of innocence in this country" and given the lack of evidence she saw that could corroborate the allegation she "could not conclude that Brett Kavanaugh" was Ford's assailant. The effort's new fundraising goal is $4 million.
The Democrats' prospect list is topped by Rep. Chellie Pingree, who Collins defeated once already, back in 2002.

"I think it's the end of whatever legacy she has worked so hard to achieve as a moderate", Amy Halsted, co-director of Maine People's Alliance, which helped start the fundraiser, told Rolling Stone. She gave an impassioned, attractive speech yesterday.
Rice also said her family "goes back generations" in ME and that she's owned a home in the state for the last 20 years. Rice received an honorary degree form the Bowdoin College this year. "They are not living at home".
