Sen. Chuck Grassley pledged to help raise funds for Sen. Susan Collins ahead of the 2018 midterm elections this week; vowing to aid his GOP colleague from vicious, well-financed liberal attacks in the aftermath of her “yes” vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Grassley described Collins’ treatment following the vote as “absolutely abominable,” adding “It just goes to show you how narrow the thinking of the opposition to Kavanaugh was that they would say those extremist […] positions about a person who has been with them most of the time.”
Several groups have launched anti-Collins campaigns to flip her Senate seat; raising over $3 million to finance their efforts.
“I’m going to help raise $3 million to match that,” Grassley pledged.
Never let Collins have a moment of peace in public again.

Collins has received rave reviews from left-wing activists in the past, particularly for her “no” vote on repealing and replacing Obamacare. Now, she’s being described by radical liberals as a “rape apologist” and “traitor.”
