Kavanaugh wrote that "I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent", which is precisely what pro-abortion rights advocates fear most - and that Kavanaugh would be part of a conservative majority on the Supreme Court to do just that. The money, which is being raised in a nationwide crowdfunding campaign, would be released to Collins' Democratic opponent if she votes for the nominee. The former gave her a 90% rating in 2014, while the latter defended Collins for standing with Planned Parenthood and with women "when it mattered most". Republicans control the Senate 51-49, and Vice President Mike Pence would get to vote in the case of a tie.

About 500 people attended a rally in front of Portland City Hall on August 26 to encourage Collins to vote "no" on Kavanaugh, Follayttar Smith said. One after another, activists stood to protest Kavanaugh's positions on healthcare, abortion, gun rights or the proceeding itself, interrupting lines of questioning and irritating some Republican committee members.
The document had been among many held by the Senate Judiciary Committee as confidential, over the objections of Democrats, who have argued throughout this week's hearing that Republicans have shielded important papers about Presidential Donald Trump's nominee.
If Collins votes yes, then he is likely confirmed. Earlier this week, he clarified testimony from his 2004 confirmation hearing involving a controversial judge he helped shepherd through the nomination process. "I'm a skeptic of unauthorized regulation, of illegal regulation, of regulation that is outside the bounds of what the laws passed by Congress have said". Liberal groups are running TV ads encouraging the senator to reject the nomination.
