Sen. Susan Collins: I’ll Have An In-Depth Discussion With Trump’s SCOTUS Pick On Keeping Roe [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

“I’m going to have an in depth discussion with the nominee and I believe very much that Roe v. Wade is settled law, as it has been described by Chief Justice Roberts,” Collins said. “It has been established as a constitutional right for 46 years — 45 years, and was reaffirmed 26 years ago.”

Collins, who will be a key swing vote in the nominee’s upcoming confirmation process, said on Sunday that she was looking for a nominee who would “demonstrate a respect for precedent.”

“A nominee position, whether or not they respect precedent, will tell me a lot about whether or not they would overturn Roe v. Wade,” she said. “A candidate of this import position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me, because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don’t want to see a judge have.”
