Collins hopes to have Trump’s support.
As if 2020 isn’t already exciting. Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins confirmed on Fox & Friends this morning he will challenge incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler for her seat.
Loeffler took over the seat after Sen. Jonny Isakson retired. She was sworn in on January 6.
For months, I have given serious deliberation to the role I should serve that would best benefit GA, the country and @realDonaldTrump. Today, I have officially launched my campaign for Senate to do just that. I invite you to join our campaign here:https://t.co/xubaYUr5RP

Since it’s a special election there will be no primary. This has caused concerns among Republicans because some believe “the GOP division heightens the possibility that a unifying Democratic candidate can win the race outright.”
The news did not thrill people since the Republicans have a minority in the House and a slim majority in the Senate.
