Maine Senator Susan Collins survives the run of her life against all odds

Susan Collins entered the 2020 election cycle as the main target of Democrats in the U.S. Senate – and ended it by defeating them again, winning a fifth term representing the state of Maine.

Collins announced in Maine on Wednesday that her Democratic opponent Sara Gideon had called her to concede the race. With more than 80% of the vote, Collins led Gideon by eight points – and with more than 50% of the vote, the senator avoids a second ballot under Maine’s tiered choice voting system, which Republicans feared would deny him victory.

Collins’ victory virtually ensures that the GOP will retain its grip on the Senate.
