“Skeptical” party leaders refuse to rally around Loeffler as she signs on to unpopular and divisive agenda
Atlanta — “Political mega-donor” Kelly Loeffler is wrapping up another lousy week, with her own party continuing to descend into infighting as she sparks a “rift” in Georgia government and manages to alienate independent voters — all in the space of just a few days.
It’s been nearly a month since news broke that Governor Brian Kemp would reward mega-donor Loeffler with a Senate seat — after she promised to funnel $20 million of her fortune into the race — and Loeffler is still struggling to end the “GOP firestorm” that followed her announcement. All she’s seemingly managed to do is raise more doubts about her profile among “skeptical” party leaders while signing on to an unpopular and divisive agenda that alienates independent voters.
Heading into 2020, Loeffler is still facing potential conservative challengers and she’s compensating by moving farther and farther to the right in a desperate bid to heal the intra-party wounds her “fiasco” appointment created.
