As news breaks that Loeffler was under investigation by the FBI, the unelected senator doubles-down on spending millions to slam Collins while her own party doubts her ability to win
ATLANTA — This week, unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler and her opponent, top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins, continued to ramp up their escalating intraparty war at a time when Georgia Republicans can least afford it.
Coming off a tide of negative stories and poor polling numbers, Loeffler began her week by turning her fire on Collins with a new “barrage of attacks,” using her millions to try and rip apart her competitor as her own campaign continues to sink. Yet despite their best attempts to tear the other down, neither Loeffler nor Collins can get any support from the White House, which continues to be “increasingly concerned” about the GOP’s prospects in Georgia as the Vice President today makes his second visit to the state in the last week.
Making matters only worse: news finally broke this week that Loeffler had been under investigation by the FBI over her coronavirus stock trades — a development she immediately tried to spin despite leaving several critical questions unanswered. But no matter how much she tries to blame shift her way out of her scandal, Loeffler still can’t shake worries from her own party as she and Collins continue their multimillion-dollar slugfest.
