Susan Rice Suggests She’ll Run for Senator in Maine Following Collins’ Yes Vote on Kavanaugh

Susan Rice

Former U.S. National Security Advisor under President Obama Susan Rice may try for a Senate seat in Maine. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced Friday that she would vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Democrats were hoping she would be a “no” vote, but Collins’ support is the nail in the coffin on the fight against Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Less than an hour has passed since the Maine senator’s announcement and one Twitter user posed the question, “who wants to run for Senate in Maine?” Rice responded, “Me.”

Seacoastonline.com reported in 2015 that Rice has ties to Maine. Her parents and grandparents on her father’s side lived in the state. Rice received an honorary degree form the Bowdoin College this year.

After her first tweet suggestions a Senate run gained attention, Rice clarified that she’s “not making any announcements.”

However, Rice didn’t say she wouldn’t run for a Maine Senate seat.

Speaker of the Maine House, Sara Gideon, also expressed interest in a higher office after Collins announced her support for Kavanaugh.

Responses

  1. Susan Rice is a liar and a criminal that supported her puppet Barack while in office. Maine should not even consider an outsider with no morals!

  2. If I recall correctly, this woman is under investigation for unmasking several people for which FISA warrants were obtained. Until that investigation is completed and we know what her role was in the unmasking, I will not even consider her as a candidate for the Senate.

  3. Susan Rice? Ha! Ha! Just what we need in the House of Representatives, yet another pathological serial liar and for kicks a NObama-ite troll.

    If Susan wants to be in DC so bad, I’d suggest she try being a Senator from Vermont. They have two idiot Senators, the addled brain-dead Patrick Lahey (D) and the creepy Socialist Bernie Sanders, both old geezers. I think Lahey has ADD and/or dementia. Watch him behave on CSPAN sometime; what a dimwit; he’s on another planet most of the time.

  4. IN THE IMPORTANT CASES RE ELECTIONS ITS NOT HOW MUCH MONEY U HAVE OR SPEND IT IS THE QUALITY OF THE CANDIDATE THAT COUNTS……..

  5. PLEASE DO NOT MIX CONDI RICE & SUSAN RICE THEY DO NOT SHARE MUCH MORE THAN THEIR SEX SEC OF STATE CONDI RICE IS AS M L K WOULD SAY A WOMAN OF THE HIGHEST CHARACTER AND ALL THAT HONOUR CONTAINS & REPRESENTS…….

  8. To the few liberal women in Maine, suck it up and stop being whining brats. You make America look stupid.

  9. You’ve got to be kidding me. Rice one of the most Unamericans in politics, wants to run for an office? She’s a damm joke, and she should have been jailed by now. She sure as hell should not be allowed to run for anything ever again within our government.

  10. Susan Collins just got an ARMY OF SUPPORTERS on the other side, Susan —
    We’re “just a little” fired up too —- so, go ahead run susan run —

    the honest susan will win and that is not you —

    1. The Crowdpac servers were so overwhelmed by donors that they crashed. Traffic spiked by 90 times the average / hour. So far, the fund opposing Collins had raised over $2.2M for whoever ends up running against her.

      If you don’t like this function, then vote to get money out of politics.

      1. Good God insipid. I don’t think J. gives a crap about crowdpac’s servers or how much money they raise. I know I don’t. Doesn’t matter how much money they raise in this particular race, if a crappy candidate runs against Collins, the crappy candidate is gonna lose. You totally missed the point of J.’s comment. You have no clue as to how much support Collins just got WITHOUT having to spend one single penny.

        1. A large pool of funds will give a huge leg up to whoever gets to run against Collins, though. In 2014, Collins raised $6.23M, so with the fund now having over $3M, the 2020 campaign will be much more interesting.

      2. I’m hoping Rice DOES establish residence in ME, wins the Dim primary, and runs against Collins.

        It will be a Susan on Susan Thunderdome.

  11. Did any of you notice that Mitt Romney is running, and will be elected, as a senator from Utah?

  12. I’m so disappointed and ashamed of senator Collins. She has sent women’s rights back to the dark ages just like all the old republicans. They are so out of date with no understanding of sexual abuse and the correct behavior for a Supreme Court Justice.. I’m 76 years old and this trump group are gop ( goofy old patriarchies ) patting us on the head and assuring us they will take care of us, not to worry Kavanaugh/ trump are ok, and wanting us to be quiet. I can’t forget women protestors being called loud mouths by these old “guys”. Vote them out one at a time.

    1. Are you suggesting that it’s okay to falsely accuse someone of a felony crime if does so further supports “women’s rights”? Because that is precisely what occurred. I (a 62 year old man) am deeply against any kind of violence against women (my mother was a victim). But I would never destroy someone by lying in order to advance my agenda, and that is exactly what you are doing. Frankly, this had NOTHING to do with women’s rights, this had everything to do with planned political actions by the Dems, and protestors paid for by George Soros. Ford was nothing more than a shill for these people and she has now been tossed to the side lines by them.

    2. I just don’t understand how women’s rights are back to the dark ages. I am 70 yrs old. I think women have more rights today than ever. There is nothing we can’t do if we put our minds to it. I am so upset that the women protesters have shown hate towards people. My life is much better than my mothers or grandmothers and I feel it will only change for the better. If a women wants to abort her unborn child, she has the right, that will not change. I do not understand how you feel it will. It is 40 yrs old and was reaffirmed again in 2011. Kavanaugh is not going to rule against it, he is only one person, there are 8 others on the Supreme Court. He has worked hard to become the man he is today. I would like to see all these protesters tell all from their high school and college days. I am sure we have all done things in the past that we wish we could change. But to be accused of something that there is no proof of is just not right. Ruining a person’s life with no evidence to back it up is just not right. A lot of this hatred comes from removing our Christian beliefs from our society.

  13. Thank you Senator Collins for your “Yes” vote today! You will receive more support from the silent majority, and the loud minority will continue to ramp up the Republican base. Bring on Susan Rice, what a joke!

    1. AMEN TO THAT —

      What do they think? the other side just sits around and does nothing

      Why do you think Trump won in 2016 and will win even BIGGER in 2020 !!

      Louder does not equal stronger — quite the opposite

  14. Run, Susan, run! I can’t wait until they bring up Benghazi or your leaking of how and who was targeted on the Trump campaign and transition team.

    You are NOT a Maine resident. You would still need to primary. Maine has blue pockets, but in a game of Go it would be screwed by the surrounding red districts.

    1. Yes, Run Susan. I can’t wait to see the tapes of you on five
      Sunday shows lying about Benghazi and the tape where you said Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction.” I can’t wait for somebody to ask you what happened to the man who made the movie on Islam that you and Hillary said was the reason for the attack in Benghazi. Is he still in jail?

  15. Susan Rice-Paddy is another Swillary.
    Vote for me! I love lobsters! I wear L.L. Bean.
    The Rain in Maine falls mainly in my Brain.

      1. In the very brief conversation I had with Alex, he said the comment votes will be coming back. Hope so.

          1. Skatell- had a brief conversation with him one evening here.

          2. Thanks for that info.
            I believe that having participants is better than just up/downs, which encourages anonymous trolls.
            On the other hand, it’s a timesaver.

      2. Hey Phoenix, She’ll never pass the background check to her illegally outing some many people a a puppet for Obama. No more people from Obama destruction of America team.

        1. Where did you get the idea that a US Senate candidate is required to pass a background check? The current POTUS could never have passed a background check. Susan Rice has already passed a number of background checks when she served in the Clinton and the Obama administration in high level positions. The right wing conspiracies involving Rice were repeatedly disproved during the 4 year House and Senate Benghazi investigations. If Republicans are not going to believe the under oath testimony of General Petraeus that he approved the talking points provided to Rice for her appearance on the Sunday shows, why bother to investigate?

          1. Calling Susan Rice a Celebrity Is as much a joke as her being called a Republican After she made the rounds Lying for Obama about how Four brave Americans was murdered by other Muslims. The Democrats and other Communist and Muslims might be OK about forgetting this, but any real American or Republican will Not forget those Obama left to die even when calling for help. GIVE ME A BREAK

    1. Hilarious. That her family has “honorary” degrees from Bowdoin means nothing.

      1. You misread the article. Susan Rice was given an honorary degree this year from Bowdoin—that would be on top of her undergrad degree she earned from Stanford, her Rhodes Scholarship and subsequent masters and PhD’s from Oxford. Her father earned a PhD from University of California at Berkeley and her mother’s degree is from Harvard. Honorary degrees are given to acknowledge the service and achievements of the recipients. They are meaningless to you perhaps because you have not been considered for one. Perhaps for another reason. But your post gives the appearance of dismissing the honor.

      1. Phoenix, I agree. Maybe it’s an effort to get more ACTIVE participation.

        1. That might be. The votes are a little easier than commenting “I agree!” every time. Though Otis’ rhymes usually deserve the effort!

  16. Exactly. It was bad enough when Hillary carpetbagged her way into the senate seat for NY. Even if her parents and grandparents were from Maine SHE is not a resident.

    1. Were you a NY resident when Hillary ran for the Senate? Are you planning to move to Maine? Why not let the voters of the state or district in which candidates run make that call? At the very least, you should wait until they ask for your advice and even then would you not need to know the other candidates and their qualifications?

      1. It puts the lotion on its skin. Moron.
        Let’s examine your argument. If a Red stater (you’re stupidity marks you as a Blue) ran for your state senator, without actually living in your state, exactly how would you feel about that? More importantly, how would other voters in your state?
        I make a six-figure income in retirement working as a consultant. MY advice is NOT free.

        Ms. Rice is free to run, provided she has the qualifications. I’d welcome her campaign and make popcorn.

    2. If a certain stupid, cowardly, unnamed troll had a brain it would read the Constitution which clearly states that a state senator MUST be a resident of that state.

      Certain states may have additional requirements including LENGTH of citizenship. e.g. you can’t rent an apartment for a week and decide to run.

      1. Where does the US Constitution or the Maine constitution state one must be a resident for any time other than the day of election? One must live in Maine for 5 years before running for Governor, but not US Senator or US Rep. Collins’ term does not expire until Jan 3, 2021. Election day is 2 years away. And in an actual LOL moment, it is rich that you hide behind “Screwtape” and call someone else a “coward” for not identifying them self. I have to guess that you did not earn a “six figure” consulting fee for application of logic.

      2. Crowley barely stepped foot in NY most of his political life.

  17. Rice is not a Mainer and should not carpetbag her way in. There are Maine women who could run and give Susan Collins her walking papers. Mainers would NOT welcome a celebrity candidate helicoptering in to run.

    1. Susan Rice is a “celebrity”??? How did you decide that? In what state does Susan Rice currently reside?

      1. I’d say quasi-celebrity, having served several roles under Obozo.
        Since you’re clearly too lazy and ignorant, giant hint: Washington, D.C.
        Not Maine.

        1. Not following your logic,Screw. Nikki Haley is UN Ambassador and served as Gov. of SC, Condi Rice served as Sec of State and NSA for Bush, but I do not any of the women a celebrity or a “quasi-celebrity” I consider them accomplished women. —and in the case of Condi and Susan, Ivy league educated with advanced degrees. Susan Rice owns homes in Maine, New York and DC. Screw.

          1. A summer home which she sometimes visits in Maine. She is damned sure not to visit it in any of the other 3 seasons. Nice qualifier, anon.

          2. If you do not spend your Winters in Maine, you have no IDEA of what your constituency wants. Just owning a home does NOT mean you know anything about the State that home is in.

      2. To the few liberal women in Maine, suck it up and stop being whining brats. You make America look stupid.

      3. If I recall correctly, this woman is under investigation for unmasking several people for which FISA warrants were obtained. Until that investigation is completed and we know what her role was in the unmasking, I will not even consider her as a candidate for the Senate.

    2. HL, I’d ignore the dullard and gutless “Anonymous”. It’s a troll. Also stupid and ignorant of the Constitution.

    3. Rice deceived the nation too many times to cover Obama and Hillary false statements. She also provided false information about Donald Trump while he was the candidate for the presidency. If anything, she lied so often, why would anyone in their right state of mind propose that she should run for the Senator in Maine? Liberals loved Collins until she stood up for what is right and just. If it is between those two, Collins would be the hell out of lying Sue. Democrats cannot play fairly. Women turn on their gender for doing against their will.
