“Schlapp, who spent five years as the chief of staff to a Kansas congressman, worked in the office of political affairs for former President George W. Bush,” the Examiner piece said. “But he has been a strong supporter of President Trump, maintaining close ties to the White House, both personally and through his wife, a Republican operative.”

Roberts has been a member of the U.S. Senate since 1997, and serves alongside Sen. Jerry Moran, also a Republican. He serves as the Chairman for the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, and serves on the Senate Committee on Finance, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Select Committee on Ethics and the Committee on Rules & Administrations.

He has sponsored six bills that have become law, including two to rename post offices.

POLL: Trump’s Pick Doug Collins is Beating Georgia RINO Senator Kelly Loeffler by 23 Points in New Poll

This is great news for Georgians who want an “America First” Senator.

Published

on

A recent poll has indicated that Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) is crushing incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) by 23 points, as the unelected appointee is hemorrhaging support after being accused of insider trading.

Battleground Connect conducted a survey throughout the state of Georgia from March 30 to April 1, asking about which candidate the respondents support in this year’s special election for the U.S. Senate. In addition to Loeffler and Collins, respondents also mentioned at least five other individuals as their preferred candidate in the race.

Collins devastated Loeffler in the new poll, receiving 36 percent of the support from Georgia voters. Loeffler only received 13 percent of the support. In the previous poll, Collins had a mere eight point lead over Loeffler. He now has accumulated 70 percent of the support from Republican voters, compared to Loeffler’s paltry 20 percent.

In a comparison of Collins’ level of support against the leading Democrat in the race, Collins beats Democrat Raphael Warnock by a margin of 49 percent to 36 percent. Loeffler is actually losing to Warnock by a margin of 40 percent to 41 percent in the poll.

Loeffler’s unfavorable ratings have grown to an incredible 55 percent, with Georgia voters rejecting the former Mitt Romney super-donor. This may be due to a recent scandal in which Loeffler was exposed for selling stock after receiving privileged information about the coronavirus pandemic at an exclusive Senate briefing.

Big League Politics reported on Loeffler’s dirty dealings that have been compared to insider trading by many observers:

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed to her post undemocratically against the wishes of President Donald Trump, has been revealed for selling stock shortly after a private briefing on the coronavirus.

She and her husband sold off a stunning seven figures worth of stock options after the Senate Health Committee held a private meeting with all Senators to brief them about the growing coronavirus epidemic.

“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These men and women are working around the clock to keep our country safe and healthy,” Loeffler wrote in a tweet about the briefing at the time.

Loeffler dumped stocks worth between $50,001 and $100,000 in Resideo Technologies following the hearing. The stock for Resideo has dropped by half since that point, as the Dow Jones has tanked by losing roughly 10,000 points.

She also made a buy of between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a tech firm specializing in teleworking that has bucked the market during its downturn due to the increased demand for remote networking because of coronavirus.

The residents of Georgia are getting to know Loeffler, who was a relative unknown before her appointment to the Senate, and they do not like what they seeing. Collins is the prohibitive favorite heading into November’s special election.
