Brett Kavanaugh supported Susan Collins in a new ad. Cenk Uygur and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“Last Saturday, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), considered a moderate swing voter, fulfilled her promise to vote in favor of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
The Judicial Crisis Network was very pleased.
The dark-money conservative advocacy group, which campaigned for Kavanaugh, announced Tuesday that it is launching a six-figure television and digital ad campaign in Maine to thank Collins for ultimately supporting the judge’s successful Supreme Court bid.
Never mind that part of Collins’ speech last week decried the “dark money” spent on anti-Kavanaugh campaigns.
The Judicial Crisis Network, which spends big in attorneys general races and judicial elections, dropped at least $1.5 million to promote Kavanaugh during his contentious confirmation battle. The group’s new 30-second TV spot on Collins begins with photos of NBC News’ Brian Williams, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CNN’s Don Lemon as a voiceover says, “Washington is divided more than ever.”
“In the midst of the chaos, one leader stood out,” the narration continues, flashing to a picture of Collins, whom it praises for being “a reasonable voice in Washington.”
