Bellows Hits Collins on Marriage

Bellows [9:15]:

Susan Collins refuses to say whether or not she supports the freedom to marry.

Now, the [Mainers United for Marriage] coalition very much wanted her support during the campaign. We reached out multiple times to ask her to come out in favor of the freedom to marry. She did not do so then. She still has not done so, even though the voters of Maine have spoken.

And I think that this shows a lack of courage because presumably in 2012 she either voted yes or no. Presumably she didn't leave the question blank.


I would just point out that--at least as far as I can recollect--there's been no public suggestion by Collins or her team that the senior senator did actually vote one way or the other on the referendum.

I'm also not aware of any Maine reporter having asked Collins the kind of direct question that would have teased out that information.
