Collins Rallies for McMahon

From the Hartford Courant:

Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski...were the featured speakers at a "Women for Linda" rally McMahon held Saturday afternoon at a Norwalk hotel...

Both Collins and Murkowski said McMahon would bring a woman's common sense touch to the dysfunction of Washington. Murkowski noted that the Senate was in session into the wee hours of the morning on Saturday, "and let me tell you, if the women were running the Senate, we wouldn't be voting at midnight."

Collins said she and the 16 other women Senators gather for dinner every six weeks or so. One day, a male colleague asked what those dinners were all about. Collins said she smiled sweetly and responded that the women were planning a coup. "And I can't think of a better person to help us execute that coup than Linda McMahon," she said as the crowd cheered.

Quote of the Day

Sen. Susan Collins:

Referring to Medicare and Social Security, [Collins] said she feared that [Romney's] comments at the fund-raiser would paint him as being against "earned programs that people pay into" and have "widespread support."

"He has just not brought sufficient clarity to what his vision for America is," Ms. Collins said.
