Ahead of Debate, Loeffler and Collins Continue “Messy Internecine Battle” That Is “Threatening Both Senate Seats”

October 19, 2020

Across the board, Loeffler and Collins remain in trouble with ratings changes, poor polling numbers, and GOP infighting undermining Republicans up and down the ballot

ATLANTA — As unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler and self-proclaimed top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins are set to participate in today’s debate, a reminder that both Georgia Republicans are in a worse position than ever two weeks from Election Day.

Here are the key facts on the state of the race:

With so much going wrong for Republicans in the special election, it’s no wonder experts are now warning of “a potential seismic shift” toward the Democrats as Loeffler and Collins continue “a race to the right” in a situation “that’s not a recipe for winning a statewide race in a rapidly changing Georgia.”

“No matter how they try to spin it, it’s clear that the war between Senator Kelly Loeffler and Congressman Doug Collins has caused lasting damage and this is exactly the position Georgia Republicans did not want to be in just two weeks out from Election Day,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “While Republicans remain mired in their messy and expensive intraparty feud, Democrats are ready to keep talking about the issues that matter to Georgia families like rebuilding our economy and protecting our health care in this growing pandemic.”
