Susan Rice will not be challenging Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine in 2020. The former National Security Adviser and United Nations Ambassador raised hopes of Democrats in the fall when she hinted she might challenge the longtime moderate Republican during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. According to the Washington Examiner, Rice told another former Obama Administration official yesterday that she and her family decided the time isn't right. Collins is considered to be one of the more vulnerable Republicans Democrats are hoping to replace so as to take control of the U.S. Senate since Maine is usually a Blue state.
