WASHINGTON D.C. – OCTOBER 4: Rachel Talbot Ross, who represents Portland’s District 40 in the Maine House of Representatives, hugs her friend Ina Demers after running into Demers leaving Senator Susan Collins office in Washington D.C. on Thursday, October 4, 2018. Talbot Ross came down with a group of women elected officials from Maine to talk with Collins’ staff about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and didn’t know her friend Demers, who works for Portland Public Schools, would also be there to speak with Collins’ staff. “It was a really wonderful surprise,” Talbot Ross said. “It just goes to show that Maine women are coming from all over the state and they are getting down here to show how important this is. I’ve been overwhelmed by the kind of energy and sisterhood that this has created.” (Staff photo by Brianna Soukup/Staff Photographer)
