FreedomWorks to Senator Susan Collins: It’s Not Just Leadership that’s Unhappy with You, The Voters Are Too

Following Senator Susan Collins’ (R-ME) comments on the Republicans strategy on the fight over Justice Scalia’s Supreme Court seat vacancy FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“I’m a bit perplexed by Sen. Collins’ position. I’m not quite sure what she is thinking, but it’s clearly one that is at odds with the Republican voters of her state. Since Obama announced that he would seek to fill the Supreme Court vacancy, conservative activists have made their position known: no hearings, no votes!”

“It’s amazing to me that after sending nearly a million messages to Senate Republicans, that some Republicans still don’t get it. Republican voters all across the country are simply asking Senate Republicans, like Sen. Collins, to act like Republicans. That means fighting for the causes and issues they care about, and when it comes to this issue, that means opposing any person nominated by this president.”

“If Republicans, like Sen. Collins, continue to act like Democrats, it seems to me that it is only a matter of time before their constituents start to notice.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
