The Lincoln Project, a conservative group attempting to avoid President Donald Trump from being reelected, pursues Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) in a brand-new attack advertisement.
In the 76-second spot launched online Wednesday, the group calls Collins a “Trump stooge” who is managed by the president and Senate Bulk Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). It knocks the senator — who has actually tried to represent herself as a moderate however voted to acquit Trump throughout his impeachment trial — for never ever withstanding the president.
“She makes excuses for corruption, for criminality, for cruelty, all while pretending she’s worried, concerned,” states the voiceover in the video.
“Maine deserves a leader, not a Trump stooge,” the storyteller concludes. “It’s time for Collins to go.”
If the advertisement will air on TELEVISION,
Attacks advertisements from The Lincoln Project, which is led by lawyer George Conway and other former GOP experts disappointed with and outraged by Trump’s management, have actually gathered millions of views on social media.
However it’s uncertain precisely how reliable such areas are or whether they in fact affect swing citizens.
Collins deals with a close race versus Democratic opposition Sara Gideon, the speaker of the Maine Legislature, in her quote to win reelection in November, according to political experts.
On Tuesday, Collins launched an advertisement slamming Gideon– one that some Twitter users explained most likely would not assist the incumbent, as it highlights her opponent’s assistance for a variety of popular causes.

Hard to select, however something’s for sure– after 133 days of trip throughout a crisis, it sure isn’t Maine. #mepolitics pic.twitter.com/hKT2PR1tzY

Talking Points Memo creator Josh Marshall explained it as “one of the saddest ads I’ve ever seen.”
