According to Collins, she is also facing a form of blackmail from a left-wing activist who raised $1 million in a crowd funding campaign.

Adding his concerns about Kavanaugh's views on executive power-especially in light of speculation that President Donald Trump may choose to fire special counsel Robert Mueller-Warner concluded he "must vote no".

In another ad being released Wednesday by Planned Parenthood, the focus group talks about how Collins has been bipartisan and could be a leader in the Supreme Court fight.

Sen. Collins recently told the Portland Press-Herald Friday that she remains undecided on whether she will vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Laguens added that ME women "know that Kavanaugh would overturn Roe and chip away at access to safe, legal abortion if given the chance.Senator Collins needs to listen to the women of ME and continue to stand up for their most basic freedoms by opposing Brett Kavanaugh".

Here are five US senators who could either make or break Kavanaugh's nomination.

"I always wait until after the hearings are complete before making a decision, and I'll do so in this case as well", she said.

They "have structured the campaign in a way that the action they will do if she does what she wants is that they will refund the money but that seems to be a fictional distinction", Noti says. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications.

But Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for the Citizens for Ethics and Responsibilities, told the Post it doesn't rise to the level of bribery, "because there's no agreement".

The two activist groups did not respond to a request for comment.

The tone of the listing was alternately threatening and encouraging.

The Planned Parenthood ads going up on Wednesday include women from a focus group conducted of swing voters in ME explaining their concerns about Kavanaugh and why they believe Collins should oppose him.

"The people of ME are asking you to be a hero, Senator Collins", it noted, while warning that if she failed "to stand up for the people of ME and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020".
