Project Guardrail: Maine 2020
Recent polling shows that support for Maine Senator Susan Collins, a Republican, had fallen just behind her Democratic challenger, Sara Gideon.
Sara gets the 'money in politics' and supports passing a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. She believes that access to healthcare is a basic human right and supports universal access. She knows that 'climate change' is a real problem, not a hoax -- and she has a plan to do something about it. She believes that big corporations and the wealthy need to pay their fare share and will stand up for the middle class and least among us.
Collins has been on thin ice with Maine voters, first catching blowback when she voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after he was accused of sexual assault. The criticism continued against Collins as she has voted with the majority of her party to acquit President Trump on impeachment charges. These decisions could cost her votes in November. The Cook Political Report ranks the race as a toss-up.

How we elect Sara Gideon: remind them what Susan Collins has become
Although regarded as a safe blue state, Maine shifted dramatically and unexpectedly towards the Republicans, with Hillary Clinton's 2.9% margin of victory the narrowest for a Democrat since 1988, when Republicans last won the state, and well down on Obama's 15.3% margin just 4 years earlier. To be successful there are at least four areas Democrats must focus on:
Firstly, banking a significant number of votes during early/ absentee voting especially in competitive counties like Hancock, Waldo, Lincoln and York.
Second, Democrats need to maximize turnout among voters of color in urban and ex-urban geographies in an around the city of Portland, in particular.
Third, increasing the Democratic margin in geographies like Cumberland and Knox counties.
Finally, Gideon needs to persuade a significant share of 2016 third-party voters who voted in 2018, particularly in communities like like Hancock, Waldo, Lincoln and York counties.
TakeItBack.Org and Project Guardrail are excited to endorse and lend a hand to Sara Gideon. We hope you are too.
