Yet another “all-out Republcian feud” arrives for Georgia GOP right as they once again “can least afford it” in Senate runoffs
ATLANTA — One year ago today, Georgia Republicans were beginning to panic about “messy” infighting between Senator Kelly Loeffler and Congressman Doug Collins — and one year later, the GOP is still stuck in “a full-blown civil war…at a moment when Republicans can least afford it.”
After spending the previous nine months locked in “an all-out Republican feud,” Loeffler and her Republcan allies have been “plunged into deeper infighting” as “resurgent Democrats” remain energized after “flipp[ing] the state for the first time in nearly three decades.”
Already, many Republicans have “privately expressed fears that the GOP warring…risks alienating independent-leaning voters.” This situation is made even more disastrous by the fact that Loeffler has continuously struggled with independent voters throughout her campaign as a result of her “scorched-earth shift to the far right” along with her coronavirus stock trading and numerous ethical lapses — including her most recent illegal fundraising scandal.
Now, with less than two months to go until runoff day, Republicans are once again risking another “divisive 2020 battle” at the worst possible moment for their damaged runoff candidate.
