Even after desperate attempts to prove herself to the GOP’s hard-right flank, Loeffler still can’t consolidate support from “skeptical” party leaders
ATLANTA — Despite political mega-donor Kelly Loeffler’s increasingly desperate attempts to prove herself to the right-wing, the “GOP firestorm” continues this week as Loeffler keeps failing to heal the intra-party wounds left by her “fiasco” of an appointment, sparking a “rift” within Georgia state government and still unable to win over “reluctant” activists — all while managing to alienate independent voters.
“Kelly Loeffler is quickly becoming her own biggest liability as she continues to provoke rifts and skepticism within her party even while she doubles-down on an unpopular divisive agenda,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “With this latest round of GOP infighting, mega-donor Kelly Loeffler is proving above all else that circumventing the voters to buy yourself a Senate seat is a losing strategy for 2020.”
Two new stories in the AJC highlight her problems, focusing both on Loeffler’s struggles to win over a “skeptical” GOP base that’s still looking for conservative challengers and the “rift” Loeffler has caused in the Lieutenant Governor’s office.
