One of those workers, Robert Pierce, tells the story of how Mitch fought for these working men and women. Frank Luntz called “Cares” one of the best positive ads of the year.

Senator Collins’ work ethic can be demonstrated in one simple statistic: she has never missed a roll call vote. Not one. This ad highlights the Senator’s commitment to her constituents in one of the more unusual ads of 2014.

The Los Angeles Times called “Home” the “Best Positive Ad” of 2014’s Senate races.
