The “all-out Republican feud” continues to ramp up into an expensive and bitter intraparty brawl between the “political mega-donor” and Trump-allied Congressman
ATLANTA — “Political mega-donor” Kelly Loeffler and top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins wasted no time diving head-first into an expensive “brutal Republican-on-Republican fight” this week. While the Georgia GOP is roiling in “an all-out Republican feud,” Loeffler and her allies began their multi-million dollar attack on Collins this weekend starting off with a $3 million “broadside” from an out-of-state group, in addition to the $5 million Loeffler has already poured into her campaign.
But the “bitter Republican showdown” is just getting started as Collins launched his own ads attacking Loeffler and her out-of-state allies, escalating their “fierce melee” even further while both continue to ignore independent Georgia voters in favor of a narrow, right-wing base.
With Loeffler and Collins now poised for a multimillion dollar slugfest, it’s becoming clear even to Republicans this intraparty brawl has led to “a Republican Party rift that is poised to put Georgia in play for Democrats.” Top political analysts are downgrading the GOP’s chances in the race, and one Georgia Republican described the party’s situation best: “It’s going to be a little messy…Actually, it’s going to be very messy.”
