U.S. Senator Susan Collins: A work-ethic that stems from picking potatoes

The People's People from Spectrum News

While Senator Susan Collins is often in the national news for her decisions in Washington, her conversation with journalist Lindsey Christ focuses on who she is and how she became such a significant national figure. Senator Collins describes growing up near the Canadian border with two parents who believed it was wrong to complain if you don’t get involved. Her first job was manual labor that paid in pennies and an early encounter with a senator from Maine inspired her future career. Collins also discusses a dramatic moment in the U.S. Senate that almost resulted in her missing a vote – and ruining her perfect record. Learn what she thinks is the biggest challenge facing Maine and how she answers our burning lightning round questions, like whether she would choose a weekend at the ocean or a lake.
