Maine Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins says she hopes President Trump's second U.S. Supreme Court nominee won't be looking to overturn what she called “settled law.”
"I want judges who recognize that their job is not to overturn long settled issues," Collins said.
But Collins also said she won't be applying an ideological litmus test when considering whether to support the president's pick for the high court.
"It is possible ... for a judge to have personal views that are at odds with how he or she rules in a case. And that is as it should be," she said.
