Kelly Loeffler Text Messages Leaked to Public
(RepublicanDaily.org) – The disputed presidential election of 2020 was almost two years ago, but it still casts a long shadow over American politics. A recent leak of text messages sent to former Georgia Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler has shed new light on events that occurred following the highly contentious vote.
Loeffler faced off against Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock in the general election of 2020. Following a highly publicized runoff election, she lost her seat to Warnock. In the days leading up to the result, the outgoing senator received a series of text messages from other conservative lawmakers seeking to pressure her into backing up former President Donald Trump’s claims about election fraud and refusing to certify the election. She indicated she was considering doing so.
Among those who allegedly appealed to the senator were Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Jody Hice (R-GA).

Loeffler abandoned any plans to support Trump’s claims after she lost her Senate seat and rioters stormed the Capitol Building on January 6. In an address she gave on the Senate floor in the wake of the attack, she said her “good conscience” prevented her from objecting to the certification of the election. She denounced the riot as “a direct attack on… the American democratic process.” However, she also reiterated her belief there had been irregularities in the election.
Do you think this story reflects poorly on Kelly Loeffler?
