Assuming the nation moves beyond hazy recollections of groping, dick wagging and college gangbangs, the fate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will rest in the hands of Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), a moderate conservative poised to “make or break Brett Kavanaugh’s chance at becoming a Supreme Court justice,” reports The Hill.

In particular, several Senate colleagues of Collins’ are waiting for her to announce her stance on Kavanaugh before announcing their own positions – while Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (NY) has asked that centrists within his caucus “keep their powder dry on Kavanaugh” until they know where Republicans stand.

Senate Republican aides think that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) will likely vote the same way as Collins, who thus far has played a more vocal role in the debate over Kavanaugh. -The Hill

“We’re talking about a jury of one: Susan Collins,” said a senior GOP aide to The Hill, who gave Collins a “51 percent chance” of voting for Kavaugh. The aide added: “When you look at Murkowski and even Flake, no one lets Collins get to the left of them, so she’s going to be the lodestar here.”

Democrats are in agreement that if Collins flips, Kavanaugh can be defeated.

“If Collins were to oppose him then that would be the kiss of death,” said Brian Fallon, a former Senate Democratic leadership aide and executive director of Demand Justice, which has helped lead liberal opposition to Kavanaugh. -The Hill

Collins was the target of an ad campaign created by three liberal activists in Maine, who established a crowdfunding campaign which raised $1.3 million to “fund her future opponent” unless she votes no on Kavanaugh.
