This new video highlights the disastrous coverage Loeffler and Collins are facing as their “raging intraparty fight” creates a “rift in Georgia’s Republican Party,” setting them up for a “battle royale” in November. Already, Loeffler and Collins have launched brutal attacks over the airwaves as they court a narrow right-wing base and jockey for Trump’s support while becoming even more out-of-touch with everyday Georgians.

“Kelly Loeffler and Doug Collins’ ‘battle royale’ is a nightmare scenario for Republicans who desperately wanted to avoid this bitter and expensive intraparty fight,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Now, both Loeffler and Collins are set to wage a disastrous and costly battle against each other for months, while the only winner of their knock-down, drag-out grudge match will be Georgia Democrats.”
