Facing a “nasty GOP fight” and struggling to define herself with Georgia voters, Loeffler leans on outside money to fight off intraparty challenge from Collins
Atlanta — Today, the brutal “Republican-on-Republican brawl” in the Georgia Senate race was “dialed up to 11” as a new AJC report revealed that allies of “political mega-donor” and unelected Senator Kelly Loeffler are forming a new outside group to slam top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins with attack ads as Loeffler struggles to stay above water.
Loeffler is already being bailed out on the airwaves by an out-of-state group spending millions on attacks while she has come under fire recently about her out-of-touch behavior. Last week, AJC reporting revealed that Loeffler bought a secretive private jet to hop between Washington and campaign events, and that despite recently portraying herself as a hunter in a new ad, she doesn’t actually have a Georgia hunting license.
“Kelly Loeffler may have bought herself a temporary Senate appointment, but her struggling campaign still needs to rely on outside groups to bail her out with Georgia voters,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “With both sides ramping up attacks and pouring more money into their intraparty feud, Republicans’ brutal, expensive brawl is far from over and Democrats are well-positioned to emerge the victors.”
