After newly released GOP polling confirms that Georgia is in play, Hotline’s Senate rankings show both seats are increasingly likely to flip
ATLANTA — Following yesterday’s news of yet another GOP internal poll showing that, to quote a vulnerable Republican senator, “the state of Georgia is in play,” the National Journal’s Hotline now ranks both of Georgia’s Senate seats among those “most likely to flip” in 2020.
The ranking notes that unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler is in “dangerous territory” following her stock trading scandal that raised “uncomfortable questions” and subsequent “unflattering headlines.” Senator David Perdue, meanwhile, is also “feeling the heat” following leaked internal GOP polling showing his seat is in play — something Perdue was already caught privately admitting to conservative activists weeks ago.
With both of Georgia’s Senate seats ranked among the “most competitive” in the country, Georgia Republicans are in an increasingly vulnerable position as it becomes more clear than ever that “Georgia looks like it’s becoming a battleground.”
