Maine's Democratic Senate primary is slated for June.

The vote will determine who faces off against incumbent Republican Susan Collins in November.


One challenger is Maine's House of Representatives Speaker Sara Gideon. Gideon is the frontrunner among Democrats vying to challenge Collins in 2020.

Colby College of Waterville, Maine recently conducted a poll of voters in the state pitting Gideon against Collins.

For the first time since her first election in 1996, Collins faces an uphill battle. 43% of Maineiacs support Gideon to 42% for Collins.

While a 1% lead seems small, in past elections Collins polled much higher than her challengers.

Collins drew national attention and scorn over her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh. When Mother Jones released news of Collins' fallen popularity, frequent Trump critic George Conway decided to use Collins own words against her.

Due to a dire shortage of lifesaving medical equipment, governors across the country are imploring the federal government to invoke its powers to compel private companies to manufacture more equipment and oversee distribution of what's already available.

The saying "While the cat's away the mice will play" refers to people taking advantage of the absence of oversight to do as they like. While that is an apt description for what is happening now with the Trump administration using the public's focus on the global pandemic to roll back environmental protections, perhaps a better saying is "The inmates are running the asylum."
