“I have always supported the nominee of my party, my entire life, and it is extremely unlikely that I would vote for Hillary Clinton, but I’m not completely closing the door, but it is extremely unlikely,” Collins told CNN.
“It is more likely that I would decide to write in a candidate or choose another approach.”
The Hill reports:
Collins made clear that she also isn’t ruling out voting for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
“We still have a ways to go, and I do believe in redemption,” she said.
“And there is a chance that he will make amends, start acting more presidential and come up with a positive agenda for our country.”
Collins, who has criticized Trump in the past, said previously her decision on whether to endorse Trump may depend on who he chooses as a running mate.
“This evolves daily. There are surprises daily. And I’m going to see what happens at the convention,” Collins said earlier.
