Help Move Georgia Forward
As more Republicans continue calling for her to drop out of the race entirely, even the White House is starting to worry about damage to “down-ballot contenders” from Loeffler’s stock trades
ATLANTA — After spending last week launching intraparty attacks and promoting polls showing her underwater, unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler got another round of bad news this weekend as both the New York Times and the AJC reported on the growing Republican angst about Loeffler’s potential to “damage down-ballot contenders.”
GOP officials across the country are increasingly waking up to Loeffler’s ability to tank the entire Republican ticket — including the Trump administration, which is still planning to stay out of the race despite both Loeffler and her opponent Congressman Doug Collins’ desperate attempts to get support from the White House. Yet despite calls to drop out amidst the GOP’s self-described “not great” polling, Loeffler still “shows no signs of backing down” as she prepares to go nuclear against Collins with millions in ads.
Meanwhile, as Republicans continue pouring fuel on their dumpster fire of a Senate contest, Georgia Democrats are in an increasingly strong position across the board in the state as polls and ratings changes continue to confirm Georgia is more “in play” than ever ahead of 2020.
