The Senate Leadership Fund released the following statement after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced he will appoint businesswoman Kelly Loeffler to the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Johnny Isakson:
“Governor Kemp’s selection of Kelly Loeffler to serve as Georgia’s next Senator is historic. As a successful businesswoman, Loeffler will join President Trump in bringing an outsider, non-politician perspective to Washington.
“We can’t allow Democrats to make Georgia a battleground for the Senate majority and the presidential election. Kelly Loeffler has what it takes to hold this seat. We are excited about Loeffler’s candidacy, and if she needs our help, we’ll be there.” -SLF President Steven Law
