“GOP firestorm” continues as hand-picked “mega-donor” Loeffler flies to DC rather than answer questions from Georgia voters and press about her record
Atlanta — Kelly Loeffler hasn’t even taken office yet, and already the “political mega-donor” is showing she’s “not yet ready for her close-up.”
This week, Loeffler continues to face “mounting conservative criticism” alongside accusations that she’s trying to buy a Senate seat by funneling “$20 million of her own cash” into next year’s election. But now, Loeffler’s also faced with a potential “minefield’ of ethical issues” as she enters the Senate and refuses to answer how she’ll handle the numerous potential conflicts of interest that will arise if she’s in charge of regulating her own business.
So what’s Loeffler’s response to these charges? She was busy this week jetting off to DC to meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and hobnobbing with Washington special interests — before she even met with her own voters in Georgia or answered questions from the Georgia press corps.

“Kelly Loeffler is avoiding questions now, but sooner or later she’ll have to face Georgia voters and answer for her record,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Rather than winning the trust and support of Mitch McConnell, Loeffler should focus on winning the trust and support Georgians who never had a chance to vet her before Governor Kemp rewarded her with a temporary appointment.”
