U.S. Republican Sen. Collins Says She Will Not Vote for Trump

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said on Monday she will not vote for fellow Republican Donald Trump for president.

"This is not a decision I make lightly, for I am a lifelong Republican. But Donald Trump does not reflect historical Republican values nor the inclusive approach to governing that is critical to healing the divisions in our country," Collins said in an opinion piece in the Washington Post.

Collins said it "became apparent that, much like" Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, Trump "was connecting with many Americans who felt that their voices were not being heard in Washington and who were tired of political correctness.

"But rejecting the conventions of political correctness is different from showing complete disregard for common decency," she continued.

Trump could have shed "the stilted campaign dialogue," she wrote, but instead he "opted for a constant stream of denigrating comments, including demeaning Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) heroic military service and repeatedly insulting Fox News host Megyn Kelly."
