Susan Collins Beaks Rank, Will Support Jan. 6 Bill on Key Vote

Sen. Susan Collins will vote for a House passed bill to create a commission to probe the Jan. 6 Capitol attack during a key test vote that will take place as soon as Thursday.

Collins will support the bill during an initial hurdle so that she can offer an amendment making changes to the legislation, an aide confirmed to The Hill.

“I want to see a commission. … There are a lot of unanswered questions, and I’m working very hard to secure Republican votes for a commission,” Collins told reporters earlier Wednesday.

Her comments make Collins the third GOP senator to say they will support the bill during an initial vote, where it will need 60 votes to move forward.

Most Republicans are deeply opposed to the bill, and it’s expected to fall short of the 10 Republican senators needed to move forward now.
