Collins will be a crucial confirmation vote for any Supreme Court nominee. With the Republicans in the Senate holding a one-seat majority, and only needing a simple majority to confirm, all it would take would be two Republicans to vote against a nominee for them to not be confirmed.

The senator from Maine has made her feelings about Roe v. Wade very clear over the last week.
“I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because that would mean to me their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law,” Collins said on CNN this weekend. (RELATED: GOP Sen.
