2020 Overview Though Susan Collins was re-elected statewide, Future Now Fund-endorsees were able to expand the Senate majority that we helped flip in 2018, which is especially meaningful because of the progress made on America’s Goals policies in the 2019-2020 term. Maine has its largest majority in 30 years, and more importantly, a majority committed to improving the lives of all Mainers. 2020 Election Highlights Maine Senate candidates as a whole performed about 3% worse than the top of the ticket, but FNF-endorsees performed 3% better than the top of the ticket on average.
