I’m not a fan of his but this needs to be called out. Mannnnnnnnnn, is it cynical. It’s like attacking Matt Gaetz for being “anti-Trump,” except that that argument might actually be more persuasive than the one here. Watch, then read on.
— The Senate Majority (@NRSC) February 27, 2020
Why is the NRSC unloading on a guy who spent most of his waking hours between September and January of this year spinning every which way for the president on impeachment? If you’re following the Georgia Senate race, you know why. If you’re not following it, catch up with this post from last month. Against Trump’s wishes, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp appointed Kelly Loeffler to fill the Senate vacancy left by retiring Johnny Isakson. Trump wanted the seat to go to Collins as a reward for loyalty; Collins badly wanted it too. Kemp shrugged them off and named newbie politician Loeffler to the seat instead, believing that she’d play better with suburbanites and increase the GOP’s chances of winning a special election for the seat this year.
