Georgia Governor Brian Kemp appointed businesswoman Kelly Loeffler to the United States Senate Wednesday; filling a seat left vacant by retiring lawmaker Johnny Isakson.
“Kemp’s decision came despite intense criticism from conservative allies of President Trump who wanted Kemp to appoint Rep. Doug Collins, one of Trump’s staunchest defenders in Congress. Loeffler, a co-owner of the Atlanta Dream professional woman’s basketball team, on Wednesday attempted to assuage the concerns of those who were against the political outsider,” reports Fox News.
“I haven’t spent my life trying to get to Washington. But here’s what folks are going to find out about me: I’m a lifelong conservative. Pro-Second Amendment. Pro-military. Pro-wall. And pro-Trump,” she said.
“She will be an incumbent Republican Senator,” added Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

BREAKING: Georgia Governor Brian Kemp Signs Pro-Life ‘Heartbeat’ Legislation into Law
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed into law his state’s latest pro-life legislation Tuesday morning; enacting the so-called “heartbeat” bill that prohibits abortions after doctors can detect a viable heartbeat.
“Kemp kept his campaign promise in signing the bill, HB 481, technically called the ‘Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act,’ that will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The law allows exceptions in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger,” reports Fox News.
“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp said during the signing ceremony. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”
“Our job is to do what is right, not what is easy,” Kemp added. “We will not back down. We will always continue to fight for life,” he added.
