Georgia Governor Deifies Trump

Via The Washington Examiner:

Defying President Trump, Georgia’s Republican governor, Brian Kemp, appointed Atlanta businesswoman Kelly Loeffler to finish the Senate term vacated by Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson.

Kemp on Wednesday picked Loeffler, a GOP donor and business owner, over Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, who Trump favored to succeed the ailing Isakson, 74.

Collins, 53, who represents Georgia’s 9th District since 2013, has been a top supporter of the president in the House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment investigation and will play a central role defending Trump during the Judiciary Committee’s public impeachment hearing on Wednesday.

Kemp, 56, is also a strong Trump supporter.
