Georgia Governor Appoints Kelly Loeffler to Senate in Defiance of Trump

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, appointed his preferred candidate to the state’s vacated Senate seat on Wednesday in defiance of President Trump.

Kemp chose multimillionaire businesswoman Kelly Loeffler to replace Senator Johnny Isakson, who stepped down today due to recurring health issues. Kemp reportedly believes Loeffler will help the GOP with suburban voters and women in particular, but some conservatives have criticized Loeffler’s membership on the board of Grady Memorial Hospital, the largest provider of abortions in Georgia.

President Trump and allies have made it clear to Kemp that they preferred Representative Doug Collins for the appointment. Collins is a staunch supporter of Trump and is the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee.

“I stand with hardworking Georgians and @POTUS,” Kemp wrote on Twitter in November. “The idea that I would appoint someone to the U.S. Senate that is NOT pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-freedom, and 100% supportive of our President (and his plan to Keep America Great) is ridiculous.”
