Following Collins’ endorsements from Congressman Drew Ferguson and pro-Trump super PAC, newly revealed dark money group lets donors “anonymously” attack Loeffler
ATLANTA — A breaking new report from the Daily Beast revealed that a new GOP dark money group called “Georgia Is Not for Sale” has sprung up to “anonymously bring down Kelly Loeffler.” This latest endorsement against unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler follows Congressman Drew Ferguson and a top pro-Trump super PAC “breaking ranks” earlier this week to support her rival, top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins.
The new dark money group “has plans for a larger and more aggressive media operation” funded anonymously by donors. And the group’s investment comes after outside conservative groups backing Loeffler have gone off the air in Georgia, forcing her to rely even more on her own $20 million pledge she used to buy her Senate appointment.
Loeffler has previously come under fire from members of her own party who warned about “down-ticket damage” as a result of her stock trading scandal while she has refused to clearly answer questions or follow Senator Richard Burr’s example and call for a Senate Ethics investigation.
“A dark money group targeting Senator Kelly Loeffler and further inflaming her intraparty brawl against Congressman Doug Collins is just the latest disaster for Georgia Republicans and another example of how toxic the senator has become,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “This group joins a growing list of outside conservative organizations taking sides in this multimillion dollar Republican slugfest, leaving Georgia Democrats as the only winner in this fight.”
