Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, a prominent moderate Republican, raised campaign cash Monday for Pennsylvania GOP Senate nominee Pat Toomey, a conservative who as recently as last year was trying to defeat people such as Collins.

In 2009, the Club for Growth, a free-market advocacy group that Toomey ran until he declared his Senate candidacy, had skewered Collins as “Comrade of the Month” for her vote for President Obama’s stimulus legislation.
