I guess this was the bets place to put this article.

"Sen. Susan Collins is engaged to be married to Thomas A. Daffron, a longtime Senate senior staff member and a consultant.

A small, private ceremony is expected to take place in Maine this summer at a date still to be determined.

“What matters the most to me is to have my family there and Tom’s family there,” Collins told the Bangor Daily News on Thursday night before heading to Munich for a security conference. “So we’re debating whether we should have it in my hometown of Caribou or Bangor, where I live now … I’m sure it will be a very happy occasion with a lot of joy.”

The two met when they both worked for Sen. Bill Cohen in the late 1970s, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that they developed a personal relationship."


I'm very happy for her. She's one of my favorite Senators and I wish her the best!

She's clearly marrying a lunatic, or at least someone crazy enough to marry her.

How random. Congrats and all, but I am a bit disappointed the lesbian rumors were apparently erroneous. Though it does appear this guy's just a lobbyist who's banished to the basement, so who knows Huh

Collins has always been one of my favorite Senators as well, mostly due to the obvious Jan Brady complex she has going on with Olympia Snowe. This has always humored me, whether or not it's true:

Quote
Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins is fond of sending angry, middle-of-the-night e-mails to staffers because she's frustrated that her colleague and rival Olympia Snowe gets more and better press. As a result, reports Latimer, she rips through press secretaries like 30-packs at a beer-pong tournament. (A Collins press secretary didn't respond to a request for comment.)

I think her husband died in the late 90's.

I must confuse with the other Maine senator. I always confuse them (but, who doesn't?).

Yeah, your right. I think Peter Snowe died in the 90s.

Actually, he died in 1973 and Olympia took his seat in the state house.

Actually, stuff like this belongs in U.S. General, as none of it pertains to "Congressional Elections."
