LePage , who endorsed Trump as his third choice among Republican candidates, also accused Collins of planning to pursue a position in the Democratic administration of Hillary Clinton if she had won the election. Collins spokeswoman Annie Clark responded in a text message that “( Collins ’) goose not only hasn’t been cooked, it hasn’t even been plucked yet.” “In fact, her goose is alive and healthy and looking forward to many more years of service to Maine ,” Clark said. She rejected the assertion that Collins would have been interested in joining Clinton’s administration.

Collins was one of seven senators to vote to impeach Trump earlier this year.

"This impeachment trial is not about any single word uttered by President Trump on January 6, 2021. It is instead about President Trump's failure to obey the oath he swore on January 20, 2017. His actions to interfere with the peaceful transition of power - the hallmark of our Constitution and our American democracy - were an abuse of power and constitute grounds for conviction," Collins said speaking on the Senate floor after her vote in February.

LePage and Collins have also differed over policy, including when Collins voted against legislation that would have unraveled Affordable Care Act reforms, The Portland Press Herald noted.

But LePage backed Collins during her during her reelection campaign in 2020 amid a competitive fight against Democratic challenger Sara Gideon.
