Hello, I'm Senator John Ensign, Chairman of the NRSC. My friend Susan Collins of Maine is running for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
As a Senator, Susan has worked hard on the issues that matter most to Maine -- reforming our national intelligence program, improving our disaster response system and promoting a stronger education system for our children. Her dedication to the people of Maine, and to all Americans, began in 1996 when she was elected to her first term in the U.S. Senate.
Susan has fought hard to protect the safety of our nation's ports and to prevent terrorist attacks on chemical facilities. As a tireless advocate for children, Susan authored the law that allows teachers a tax deduction when they spend their own money on classroom supplies. She also serves as co-chair of the Senate Alzheimer's caucus and is a member of the Senate's Special Committee on Aging.
While in the Senate, Susan has earned praise from many in the state including the Portland Press Herald that commended Collins' moderation and bipartisan style.
But Susan can't do this alone -- it takes your support both financially and in the voting booth in November 2008 to make these goals a reality. Thank you for your support of the NRSC and for my friend Susan Collins.
