Susan Collins Gets Endorsement From Joe Lieberman

September 10, 2020

Susan Collins, a Maine Republican who is running for re-election in the U.S. Senate this November, received an endorsement from Joe Lieberman, a former Democratic U.S. senator from Connecticut. Lieberman was Al Gore’s running mate in the 2000 presidential election.

Lieberman’s endorsement comes from a commercial paid for by the Republican Jewish Coalition Victory Fund.

Collins is trailing her Democratic opponent, Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon, in recent polls. President Donald Trump did not win Maine in 2016, and Collins and Trump are appearing on the general election ballot together this time around.
