So we asked some of the candidates endorsed by Blue America what exactly they plan to do with last minute ActBlue contributions . Their ...

Backing QAnon-loving candidates is probably not the best look when you're trying to convince Mainers that you're their best choice and deserve a fifth term in the U.S. Senate. Do better, Maine. Vote for Sara Gideon . Source: Mainer Sen. Susan Collins is financially supporting the state legislative campaigns of two fellow Maine Republicans who fervently believe in QAnon, the perverse conspiracy theory whose adherents are considered a domestic terror threat by the FBI.
