The Washington Examiner reports:
In the special election for appointed Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s seat, again, none of the rivals attract the 50% support needed to skip a runoff.
Loeffler’s campaign in the so-called jungle primary has been derailed by allegations she and her New York Stock Exchange chairman husband Jeffrey Sprecher made favorable trades after she received a private briefing warning of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Loeffler is unlikely to finish in the top two, with 12% of the vote compared with front-runner Rep. Doug Collins’s 34%. Polling Collins against the field of Democrats has him at 44% to Matt Lieberman’s 44%, 44% to Raphael Warnock’s 45%, and 45% to Ed Tarver’s 42%.
