SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler is hoping to continue her time in Washington by winning the special election in November. She kicked off another week of her All About Georgia tour with a meet and greet in Savannah.
Loeffler is expected to be at the Desoto Hotel Monday morning in downtown Savannah for a meet and greet. According to her website, people can still register for the event.
Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia’s First Lady are expected to join her in Savannah. The governor chose Loeffler to fill the seat of Senator Johnny Isakson after he announced he was stepping down late last year. But in order to keep her seat in Washington, Loeffler will need to win the special election come this November.
Senator Loeffler says she knows Georgians will be looking at her short record when they head to the polls, especially when it comes to the pandemic.
“But I’ve also worked very hard to deliver relief under the Paycheck Protection Program through the Small Business Administration,” the senator said. “So many small businesses here in Savannah received PPP funding and helped restaurants, hotels keep their doors open, and that’s the type of thing that kept people on the payroll, kept them connected to their benefits for their families through this moment. We have more work to do, but we’re continuing to deliver those results every single day.”
On Sunday, Loeffler was at Fort Stewart talking to installation leaders about their priorities. When she arrived in Hinesville, she was greeted by Mayor Allen Brown. The senator left for North Georgia after her appearance for another campaign stop in Dalton, GA.
