Democratic donors and activists are going after Susan Collins in 2020, the Huffington Post reports, with a multi-million dollar campaign they hope will oust her from the Senate.

The details: Collins infuriated Democrats by saying she would support Brett Kavanaugh's nomination, all but securing his confirmation to the Supreme Court.

The number of coronavirus cases increased in the vast majority of states over the last week, and decreased in only two states plus the District of Columbia.

Why it matters: This is a grim reminder that no part of the United States is safe from the virus. If states fail to contain their outbreaks, they could soon face exponential spread and overwhelmed health systems.
