Susan Collins opponent to get 3.2 million raised in 24 hoursIn the day after Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) threw her support behind embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a crowdsourced effort to finance her eventual 2020 opponent raised more than $1 million.

The whopping sum brought the total amount raised to just about $3.2 million ― far more than Collins’ last challenger spent in total in the 2014 midterm race. More than 100,000 pledges have been made as of Saturday afternoon, with around 30,000 of those coming in the previous 24 hours.

The Crowdpac page was so popular it briefly crashed Friday afternoon. The effort is jointly led by the Maine People’s Alliance, Mainers for Accountable Leadership and activist Ady Barkan, who co-founded the progressive Be A Hero campaign.
