Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on Kelly Loeffler Senate Appointment

December 4, 2019

Atlanta — Today, in response to the announcement that Kelly Loeffler will be appointed senator by Governor Brian Kemp, Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams issued the following statement: 

“Today’s appointment showcases exactly where Brian Kemp’s and Georgia Republicans’ priorities lie: with their own special interests, instead of the people of Georgia. After a reckless process where political games were put ahead of the public good, Kemp chose one of his own donors who will be nothing but a rubber stamp for today’s GOP agenda. 

Kelly Loeffler has already made it clear that she will not be an independent voice for our state, and instead will fall in line with Donald Trump, David Perdue, and today’s Republican Party. Like her colleagues, Kelly Loeffler will have to run on the GOP’s toxic record of ripping away health care protections from Georgians and giving corporations a trillion dollar tax handout while leaving Georgia’s working families behind. 

Along with Donald Trump, David Perdue, and her fellow Georgia Republicans, Kelly Loeffler represents an endangered species: her time is running out, and we look forward to electing her replacement in November 2020.”
