Help Move Georgia Forward
As the “brutal Republican-on-Republican fight” continues to escalate, new fissures open among Georgia Republicans with party leaders forced to choose sides
ATLANTA — The “bitter Republican showdown” between “political mega-donor” Kelly Loeffler and ultraconservative Congressman Doug Collins hasn’t even officially begun and already the intraparty feud is opening a “fissure in Georgia GOP.” A new AJC report today details how the upcoming “fierce melee” between Loeffler and Collins is splitting apart Georgia Republicans as it forces “state Republicans to draw battle lines within their own party at a precarious political moment.” Even Loeffler’s own Senate colleague David Perdue is refusing to support her outright.
Now, with Loeffler facing weak polling but willing to spend $20 million of her personal fortune to buy her seat again, Republicans are looking at a drawn-out and expensive fight as both candidates grow further and further out-of-touch with Georgia voters along the way.
