Uh-oh: Is Susan Collins in Trouble?
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has historically been very popular in Maine. She was reelected to the Senate in 2014 by the eye-popping margin of 37 points--the same election which saw conservative Republican Gov. Paul LePage only garner 48 percent of the same electorate. While she's not exactly popular on a national scale due to her centrist tendencies, Mainers seem to like her just fine--until now, maybe.

Although Collins isn't up for reelection to the Senate until 2020, there's been quite a bit of chatter that she may make a run for the Blaine House after Gov. Paul LePage is term-limited in 2018 and cannot run again. Collins previously ran for governor in 1994, losing to the now-Sen. Angus King (I-ME).

Given her relative popularity in Maine, one would think that she’d be a relative shoo-in for the position, but an interesting new poll is casting doubt on if she’d even make it past the primary.

The new PPP poll of Republican Mainers has some troubling results for Collins. More than 60 percent of respondents said that they were less likely to vote for Collins in a primary due to her vote on Obamacare repeal, and 62 percent of respondents said that they disapproved of her job in the Senate.

Two Cuban diplomats have since been expelled from the U.S, confirmed State Department officials on Wednesday, although specific details surrounding the incident remain vague.

"Some U.S. government personnel working at the embassy in Havana, Cuba, on official duty, working on behalf of the U.S embassy there, have reported some incidents that have caused a variety of physical symptoms," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters.

She explained in a video that has been posted on YouTube that the department did not have definitive information on the source or cause of the incidents but could confirm that, on May 23, the State Department took further action and investigations are ongoing.

Susan Rice Suggests Donald Trump ‘Tolerate Nuclear Weapons in North Korea’
Susan Rice, Barack Obama’s former face of national security advising, actually suggested President Donald Trump’s course of action on North Korea should be one of silence and tolerance.

Specifically, Rice suggested Trump “tolerate” a nuclear North Korea.

Just sit down, shut up and tolerate.

Hey, wait a minute — wasn’t that pretty much Obama’s way of leadership? The kind that got us where we are in the first place?

Obama: Diplomacy at all costs — an epic fail. And yet that’s what Rice wants from Trump as well.

Breitbart has more:

Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power.

“History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries.
