    Maine state Rep. Rachel Talbot Ross of Portland hugs her friend Ina Demers after running into Demers leaving Sen. Susan Collins' office in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. Talbot Ross went to the capital with a group of women elected officials from Maine to talk with Collins' staff about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She said she didn't know Demers, who works for Portland Public Schools, would also be there. "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."
