Following Maine Sen. Susan Collins’ vote in favor of confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, an online fund already has generated more than $3.6 million for whichever Democrat challenges her when she is up for re-election in 2020, the National Post reported on Tuesday.

Interest in the Republican senator’s re-election two years from now has been intense since her controversial vote and complicates her path to a fifth term, with half a dozen Democratic prospects openly considering running against her.

The emergence of a crowded field in a Senate race two years away, including former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice, emphasizes the powerful political moment triggered by the debate over Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

“I think she did a disservice to people in Maine who were counting on her,” Rice said. “She has betrayed women across this country.”

Rice told the New Yorker that she would give running against Collins “due consideration” after the midterms.

Another possible challenger to Collins, Maine Democrat and businesswoman Rosa Scarcelli, added that the Republican senator “had an opportunity to make history. I’m disappointed and angry.”

“I have made it my personal mission to defeat Susan Collins,” said current Democratic Senate nominee Zak Ringelstein, who said that he’d prefer to help a Collins’ challenger as a U.S. senator, but wouldn’t rule out a second attempt to run for senator in 2020 if he loses next month when he tries to unseat incumbent Angus King.
