With Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp expected to announce soon his appointee to replace the retiring Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), conservatives have begun to sound the alarm regarding the past record of business executive Kelly Loeffler, who reports have suggested is a front runner to be picked for the seat.

Today, Terry Schilling, executive director of American Principles Project, released the following statement opposing Loeffler’s appointment:

As we approach the 2020 elections with the Senate hanging in the balance, it is critically important for Republicans to choose strong conservative candidates, particularly in key races like Georgia, in order to preserve the party’s current majority. Unfortunately, based on her record, it is clear that Kelly Loeffler would be a severe liability to this effort if appointed to Georgia’s open Senate seat.

Loeffler’s background includes a number of red flags which would likely be a huge turn off for conservative voters. For one, she sits on the board of a psychiatric facility which openly supports pro-transgender ‘treatment’ for minors, an issue which has become a growing concern for many recently, especially in light of the James Younger case in Texas. She has also donated money to Democratic candidates in the past.

In order to avoid alienating conservatives they desperately need to win, Gov. Kemp and Georgia Republicans cannot afford to take a risk on Loeffler. They would be much better served by choosing a candidate like Rep. Doug Collins who can run on his consistent track record on issues which conservatives truly care about.
