Collins: ‘I just felt that I couldn’t walk away’ from Senate

October 16, 2017

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday she decided against running for governor of Maine next year because she felt there was still an important role for her to play in the Senate.

“I looked at all that is going on in Washington today. The issues that we’re dealing with are so consequential. I do play a key role as being one of those senators who can work across the aisle and actually get things done,” Collins told host Kasie Hunt on MSNBC’s new show “Kasie DC,” which premiered on Sunday.

“And I just felt that I couldn’t walk away even though it’s a very difficult and troubled time in Washington,” the Republican lawmaker continued.

Collins said she entertained the idea of a gubernatorial run “for many reasons,” pointing to her friends and family.

    READ from COLLINS :” I JUST KNEW THAT I WOULD NEVER GET ELECTED AS GOVERNOR….” So why not have the Current GUV run against her and Get rid of another USELESS RINO POS from the US SENATE?????

  • Navy Bob says:

    She may not be leaving the Senate, but she left the GOP years ago. Just take the “Jeffords” road and switch party already.

    “Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday she decided against running for governor of Maine next year because she felt there was still an important role for her to play in the Senate.”

    The most important role Collins could play in the Senate is to GET HER STUPID LIBERAL SELF OUT OF IT. What an egotist!

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Collins is a different form of McCain I think, they’ve both been bad for the system!! (PARTY)

  • Mike N says:

    The only purpose that Collins gives the Republicans is numbers. If she quit could a real Republican win? No question she is not a moderate, but a liberal. If I remember correctly she could have stopped Obamacare on it’s inception, but wanted to see if it would fly.

  • Janthony132 says:

    God forbid this RINO runs for governor of Maine. She is another McCain…and how she got reelected is troublesome.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Like McCain,I’m beginning to think a lot of these elections are rigged, got to be!

  • John E. Olsen says:

    Susan Collins-I still have an important role to play in the Senate. Translation–The Senate democrats still need my vote to help them screw the Republicans and I would probably not win the governorship anyway.,

      LOL, NAILED that my friend!!

      BINGO, JOHN. She is ‘Old Establishment Rino, who did NOT want the “outsider, Trump to reach the Whitehouse, so that the ‘politico, elitist club of D.C. insiders, could Continue to Amass their OWN PERSONAL
      FORTUNES.” She has “been in the pocket of the teachers’ unions, whom she has been given their ‘donations’ and she did NOT want any outsider to know this.’ She, is “PART OF THE D.C. CESSPOOL OF CORRUPTION, AND TRUMP THREATENS TO DRAIN THAT SWAMP.”
      As a “Rino, she has bent over backwards FOR Dems, but did NOTHING to STOP Obama’s 8 yrs. of Dictatorial Reign, but objects to Trump, WHO ACTUALLY DOES LOVE AMERICA-UNLIKE OBAMA.”
      She brings home “the pork, for Maine voters, but there is MORE to do than Just That……We gave them as voters of the GOP, the Senate, the House, AND a POTUS…and SHE is a “BETRAYER TO WE VOTERS.”

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        Very good ItsJo and so true!

    3. K.A. says:

      That’s exactly why she isn’t running. After her antics in the Senate she’s worried she won’t get elected as Governor. If she leaves the Senate to run for Governor and then loses, her gravy train is over!

    4. The Redhawk says:

      Could the GUV UNSEAT this IDIOT????

  • CBUJAN says:

    We must not allow Susan Collins to be re-elected, we need a real conservative not a rino.

    1. ItsJo says:

      You said it! Of course, Maine Voters must like “all the pork she brings home to them, so they kept her in office.” They need to Wake Up!
