Here's Chris Quint, Director of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Via e-mail:
It has been our understanding all along that Sen. Collins wanted and was seeking our endorsement in this election cycle.
Regardless, it is unfortunate that Sen. Collins does not want the support from an organization that is the most trusted provider of reproductive health care in our state and country. Planned Parenthood is proud of our record of bi-partisan support over the years and proud of our support of Congressman Allen in this election.
