Is Jon Ossoff the Democratic front-runner in Georgia? Endorsements tell a different tale

Above: A fews of Teresa Tomlinson’s endorsements. See them all here. Update: Watch Sunday night’s Democratic candidate debate. By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman I’ve written on this issue before, but the story needs updating. Last week, the AJC reported on a poll of 591 Georgia voters conducted by the Georgia GOP House Caucus. The poll pointed to “troubling signs” for Georgia Republicans, especially Sen. Kelly Loeffler. The results were brighter for Sen. David Perdue. In a head-to-head matchup with Democrat Jon Ossoff, Perdue leads 45%-39%, with 12% of voters undecided. Those numbers aren’t good for Ossoff, and fit with the grim narrative that he can’t beat the incumbent. Interestingly, there was no polling of a matchup between Perdue and other Democrats, most notably…

Her dog won’t hunt: Doug Collins fires back at Kelly Loeffler’s Poser ad

Above: No animals were harmed during the filming of this ad Note: Scroll down to see Loeffler’s original tweet and Collins’ response. Here’s the latest on feud from AJC. update coverage By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Kelly Loeffler, Georgia’s selected U.S. senator, is all about #MAGA. She was appointed by Gov. Brian Kemp to go up to Washington D.C. and … do what she was told, apparently. Unlike Rep. Doug Collins, who is running against her, she is genuinely inauthentic. Collins is as authentic as hell, and will get in your face about it. He sports a Deliverance vibe, which is fitting, since Georgia’s 9th District is Deliverance country. Loeffler’s home turf is the New York Stock Exchange, which her husband runs. Culture…

Impeachment, Georgia Edition

  By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Teresa Tomlinson has released a video on impeachment. It’s worth noting that not only was she the first candidate to come out against Trump sycophant David Perdue, but she was also the first to speak out publicly on impeachment–in 2018, before her announcement, when she was still mayor of Columbus. She’s also said her belief in the need for Congress to investigate of President Trump’s wrongful activities dates back to his strange support of a blockade of U.S. ally Qatar in 2017. Calling for impeachment may seem like a no-brainer and not particularly unusual for a Democratic candidate for federal office, but many were reluctant to come on board. For her stance, Tomlinson earned praise as “The…
