Horror novelist and lifelong Maine resident Stephen King has endorsed the Democratic candidate in the state's senate race. In a new commercial, King makes the case for Shenna Bellows, the former state ACLU director running against three-term incumbent Senator Susan Collins. 

"I've never worked so hard, or hoped so strongly for a change in leadership from the state of Maine," King says in the ad. Collins, he says, has voted with Republicans against the minimum wage and equal pay, while "Shenna Bellows would be a breath of fresh air."
