Collins gains new allies and outside group backers against Loeffler’s millions as GOP internal fight becomes “pure misery for Georgia Republicans”
ATLANTA — Unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler is facing growing intraparty problems today as her opponent, top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins, received his first statewide endorsement after a major pro-Trump super PAC began its “seven figure” ad campaign to unseat Loeffler.
Loeffler’s struggling campaign has already seen multiple other GOP lawmakers “breaking ranks” to support her opponent while outside groups continue to jump into Georgia Republicans’ “needlessly destructive” intraparty fight. In addition to a Trump-backing super PAC joining the fray, a dark money group promising to “anonymously bring down Kelly Loeffler” recently announced “plans for a larger and more aggressive media operation.”
Now, as Loeffler struggles to overcome the damage from her stock trading scandal that became a “lesson in how not to manage a crisis,” her campaign is also ready to turn up the heat in this “expensive and embittering” intraparty brawl. Last week, a report revealed that a notable Kemp ally filed multiple ethics complaints against Collins as their feud entered “a new chapter” — and one that so far appears to be nothing but “pure misery for Georgia Republicans.”
