Sen. Susan Collins joins Cyndi Lauper on stage in Maine

Republican Sen. Susan Collins got in on the fun with '80's star Cyndi Lauper at a concert in Bangor, Maine.

At a Friday evening show featuring Lauper and singer Rod Stewart, the "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" singer took to the microphone between songs to welcome the Republican on stage, the Portland Press Herald reported."This woman is a hero," Lauper told the crowd as she walked Collins from the wings to the center of the stage, the newspaper said. "And she's my hero. And she's a Republican."What a thrill having @cyndilauper in Bangor! I will back you up anytime -- on stage or off. #truecolorsfund...
