Planned Parenthood will spend $1.7 million funding a new voter turnout effort in Maine aimed at defeating Sen. Susan Collins.
The abortion-rights advocacy group honored the Maine Republican as late as 2017, but it said Tuesday it would contact 100,000 Mainers in hopes they will vote for Sara Gideon, the Speaker of the Maine House and Democratic challenger opposing Ms. Collins.
“Like most Mainers, Planned Parenthood supporters know that Susan Collins is not the senator she once was,” said Amy Cookson, Planned Parenthood spokesperson in Maine, in a statement. “That’s why Planned Parenthood Votes’ message is already resonating with voters across the state, because we know Collins cannot be trusted to protect our health and rights.”

Planned Parenthood’s primary objection to Ms. Collins focuses on her votes to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh and other judicial nominees appointed by President Trump.
