Maine Beacon: In Debate, Trump’s Proudest Accomplishment is Thanks to Senator Collins

When asked why he should be re-elected by debate moderator Chris Wallace on Tuesday, Trump pointed to a rightward-shifted judiciary, saying “I’ll tell you something, some people say maybe the most important by the end of the first term I’ll have approximately 300 Federal judges and Court of Appeals judges, 300 and hopefully three great Supreme Court judges, justices, that is a record the likes of which very few people.”

With the presidential debate being called “a new high watermark in national shame.” Esther and Mike unpack the catastrophe as well as Monday’s U.S. Senate debate, plus reverberations from the leak of Trump’s tax documents and an appeal to young Mainers to serve as poll workers.
