2020 United States Senate election in Maine

2020 United States Senate election in Maine

← 2014 November 3, 2020 2026 →
 
Party Republican Democratic

Incumbent U.S. Senator

Susan Collins
Republican



The 2020 United States Senate election in Maine will be held on November 3, 2020, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of Maine, concurrently with the 2020 U.S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections.

The race gained specific interest among Democrats after Susan Collins chose to vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a controversial decision that resulted in several million dollars being raised to support the eventual nominee of the Democrats to oppose her,[1] which were followed by promises by others to raise a similar amount to support Collins’s reelection.[2]

The race has been rated as potentially competitive.[3]

Collins gained significant attention at the height of the 2018 midterm elections in which the Republican Senate and President Trump were pushing for the confirmation of controversial nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. She was considered a key swing voter, and when she and West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin announced that they would be voting in Kavanaugh's favor, ensuring his confirmation, activist groups mobilized to fund her 2020 Democratic opponent. As of October 5, 2018, it was reported that groups associated with activist Ady Barkan and Democratic campaigns had already raised over $2 million, and pledged the money to her eventual Democratic opponent.[1] The funds eventually reached $3.7 million. In response, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley pledged to raise $3 million to support Collins.[2]

On June 13, 2019, Betsy Sweet became the first major Democratic candidate to declare for the race.[9] Eleven days later, Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon announced her candidacy, receiving widespread media coverage.[10][11][12][13]
