GOP Georgia Rep. Doug Collins Launches Senate Bid

He’s springboarding his impeachment showboating.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

Congressman Doug Collins launched a bid Wednesday for U.S. Senate on Fox News, saying he’d center his campaign on support for President Donald Trump as he dismissed concerns about opening a bitter Republican rift in Georgia.

“We’re in for the Georgia Senate race. I’ve still got a lot of work left to do to help this president,” he said. “We’re getting ready for a good time down here to keep defending this president and working for the people of Georgia.”

The decision by the four-term congressman sets up a battle with U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, a wealthy Republican executive tapped by Gov. Brian Kemp in December. The Rev. Raphael Warnock is poised to join the November race, along with other Democrats.
