Governor Hogan is endorsing Senator Susan Collins for re-election in two new ads, calling her “exactly the kind of independent, thoughtful, and effective leader that we desperately need in the Senate.” Senator Collins consistently ranks as the most bipartisan member of the Senate.
The ads are part of a $450,000 digital campaign in support of Senator Collins from the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC).
In the first ad, titled “Independent,” Governor Hogan praises Senator Collins for being part of Maine’s “long-history of independent-thinking leaders” and urges voters to re-elect her.
In the second ad, titled “Bipartisan,” Governor Hogan appears alongside former Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker to vouch for Senator Collins’ bipartisan and independent leadership.
Script For “Independent”
Governor Hogan: Maine has a long history of independent-thinking leaders.
And Susan Collins is exactly the kind of independent, thoughtful, and effective leader that we desperately need in the Senate.
As Governor of Maryland, I can appreciate that.
I urge you to re-elect Susan Collins.
Script For “Bipartisan”
Senator Lieberman: I’m a lifelong Democrat, but I’m supporting Susan Collins for Senate.
Governor Hogan: I’m a Republican, but I’m very independent. Just like Susan Collins.
Susan is smart, effective, and always puts Maine first.
Governor Baker: There’s a reason why Democrat and Republican governors and senators are supporting Susan Collins.
It’s because she believes in doing what’s right for Maine.
Senator Lieberman: You don’t get many like Susan Collins. And when you do, you keep them.
