Georgia’s Republican governor is ignoring Donald Trump’s preference and appointing a financial services executive, Kelly Loeffler, to fill the senate seat left vacant when Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson retires for health reasons at the end of the year, according to news reports.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which broke the story , has more background on Loeffler, a multimillionaire with a history of donating to Democratic politicians.
Loeffler, the female CEO of a bitcoin business, is not beloved by more conservative Republican politicians in Georgia. But political analysts in the state see her as potentially “able to bring back suburban women who have left the Republican Party during the Trump administration,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports . Her personal wealth is also seen as a useful asset in funding the special election campaign to fill Isakson’s seat over the longer term.
In her application for the open senate job, Loeffler wrote that she would be a staunch ally of Trump, something conservatives have said they doubt.
“If chosen, I will stand with President Keep America Great,” Loeffler wrote , according to Politico . “Together, we will grow jobs, strengthen the border, shutdown drug cartels and human traffickers, lower health care costs, and protect our national interests — at home and abroad.”
Trump wanted Georgia’s Republican governor to appoint Rep. Doug Collins, who is currently the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, who “could have been a potentially critical juror in any Senate impeachment trial,” Politico reported .
Isakson, 74, has been struggling with Parkinson’s disease .
