Help Move Georgia Forward
Unable to win over moderate voters as promised, Loeffler has “pivoted to the party’s hard-right flank,” appearing with “a far-right militia group” and “joining forces with a right-wing conspiracy theorist”
ATLANTA — Unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler’s struggling campaign has failed to connect with Georgia voters across the state — so now the unelected senator has “pivoted to the party’s hard-right flank” as part of her desperate gamble to stay above water.
New reporting breaks down how Loeffler has resorted to “joining forces with a right-wing conspiracy theorist” and appearing with “a far-right militia group” as her campaign continues struggling to connect with the very voters she was appointed to win over. In fact, Loeffler’s approval is now underwater with Georgia voters by nearly 30 points, with less than a quarter of independent voters approving of the unelected senator as she also fails to consolidate the Republican base.
Now, with Loeffler trailing or tied with Democrats in head-to-head match-ups and forced to dump millions of her own money on Georgia’s airwaves in a desperate bid to stay above water, her campaign has continued lurching even farther to the right as her “her past positions” and “questions of conflicts of interest” like her stock trading scandal have “come back to haunt her.”
“Down in the polls and disliked by Georgia voters, Senator Kelly Loeffler has chosen to go as hard right as possible in her scorched earth campaign — even as her numbers with critical independent voters continue to drop,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Loeffler may be able to buy a Senate appointment, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that she can’t buy Georgia voters’ support, no matter how hard she panders.”
