Kemp Appoints Loeffler to U.S. Senate

By Staff Writer

 


Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has appointed businesswoman Kelly Loeffler to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Senator Johnny Isakson, effective December 31, 2019.

"From the farm to the New York Stock Exchange, Kelly Loeffler has lived the American Dream. I'm confident that she will work every single day to keep that same dream alive for our children, grandchildren, and generations to come. Kelly Loeffler will stand with the President, Senator Perdue, and their allies in the U.S. House and Senate," said Governor Kemp. "I'm excited to appoint Georgia's first female Senator in nearly 100 years - but, more importantly, I'm excited to appoint a life-long Republican who shares our conservative values and vision for a safer, stronger Georgia.

"Kelly is a patriot who believes in the greatness of America. She is willing to serve for freedom's sake. She is a real conservative who will defend life against the radical left's abortion-on-demand agenda, protect the Second Amendment, champion pro-growth policies, support our President, and put hardworking Georgians first.

"Senator Loeffler will fight to strengthen our immigration laws and finish the Border Wall so we can stop Mexican drug cartels from flooding our streets - here in Georgia - with drugs, weapons, violence, and fear. She will work to end this impeachment circus in Washington, D.C. and get Congress back to work for the American people.

"We have seen firsthand the impact that political outsiders like Donald Trump and David Perdue have in Washington, D.C. It is time to send them reinforcements so we can Keep America Great."

"Over the last twenty-five years, I've been building businesses, taking risks, and creating jobs. I haven't spent my life trying to get to Washington, but there are a few things folks are going to find out about me: I'm pro-Second Amendment, pro-military, pro-Wall, and pro-Trump. I'm a life-long conservative, and I make no apologies for my conservative values," said Kelly Loeffler. "I'm strongly pro-life and believe that every life is a blessing. When it comes to protecting the innocent, I don't look to government for the answers. I look to God.

"With all of the important work to be done in D.C. and here in Georgia, I'm disgusted by the impeachment circus and strongly oppose it. It's a sideshow and partisan distraction. Democrats need to quit playing politics. We're facing the fight of our generation - and that's why I'm here. As an outsider, I know that I'll have to prove it. I'll work hard every day to earn Georgians' confidence and support with my votes, priorities, and actions."

“I congratulate Kelly Loeffler on her historic appointment to the United States Senate,” said Senator Isakson. “Kelly’s business experience and acumen will be an asset to Georgia and the Senate. The same tireless work ethic that has helped her succeed in business will also help her succeed in serving Georgians and our nation. It has been the honor of a lifetime for me to serve this great state in the U.S. Senate, and my staff and I will work closely with Kelly to ensure a smooth transition.”

Senator Perdue said "My number one goal is to continue the best economic turnaround in U.S. history and focus on the needs of the people of Georgia. The only way to ensure that happens is to advance President Trump's agenda in the U.S. Senate. While Senator Isakson leaves behind big shoes to fill, I look forward to working with Kelly Loeffler, my new partner in the U.S. Senate, to continue that positive change for Georgia and our country."
