The Hillary Clinton presidential campaign really hit on something big with their new website Republicans Against Trump and the Democratic party nominee in waiting appears to be on the brink of scoring big. The first big name customer for Republicans Against Trump (R.A.T.) could be media favorite Susan Collins, the Republican Senator from Maine. Collins is always trotted out as the voice of moderation whenever the Democrats are trying to pull off some horseshit scam where they need one or two votes from the opposition in order to claim bipartisanship.
According to The Hill “GOP senator not ruling out Clinton vote”:
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) this week indicated that she’s open to supporting Hillary Clinton over her own party’s presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“That’s unlikely, even though we work well,” Collins told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd in an interview broadcast Wednesday evening when asked if she could imagine voting for Clinton.
“If she’s elected as president, I’m sure we would work very well together. It is unlikely that I would vote for her. I’m not ruling anything out, but it’s very unlikely,” Collins said.
Collins said in an interview with TIME earlier this week that she did not “anticipate” voting for Clinton and reiterated to The New Yorker that it’s “unlikely” she’d vote for the Democratic nominee.
“I’m not going to say never, because this has been such an unpredictable situation, to say the least,” she told The New Yorker for an article published Thursday.
Collins isn’t the only Republican wavering on supporting Trump. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) reversed course this week on backing the businessman, while Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) urged Republicans to dump Trump.
“There’ll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary,” Graham told The New York Times.
Collins has repeatedly voiced reservations about Trump, telling MSNBC she was “truly offended and indeed appalled” by his claim a judge was biased because of his Mexican heritage.
She said the remarks was “of a different magnitude from his earlier transgressions.”
Collins said Trump could “right the ship and start acting presidential,” saying if he focused on issues like the economy he may win her support, otherwise it’d be “difficult for me to support him.”
Interesting that the article would quote both Susan Collins as well as Lindsey Graham, other than being Republicans and enjoying a fondness for Hillary it’s anyone’s guess as to what else they may have in common.
The mutiny continues and Republicans Against Trump (R.A.T.) better have a good supply of those free bumper stickers that they are giving out for signing their pledge on hand.
