In Georgia Senate Race, Raphael Warnock is up and Matt Lieberman is down

Above: Rev. Raphael Warnock returns to his Savannah roots in new television ad Warnock looks to break from pack with ad campaign By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Progressives worrying about Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock’s absence from the airwaves can relax. His first ad, “Grew Up,” went up today, and like his original announcement video, it highlights his humble beginnings in Savannah’s Kayton Homes and rise to prominence in the pulpit of Atlanta’s famed Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. Marin Luther King Jr. and his father both served as pastors. Among Democrats in the crowded field to fill out the remainder of Johnny Isakson’s term, Warnock has a big fundraising advantages and has received endorsements from prominent Dems, including former gubernatorial candidate Stacey…

Teresa Tomlinson vs. David Perdue and the Easter Death Cult

By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Last week, I interviewed former Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson, a Democrat running in the May 19 primary for a shot at unseating Republican incumbent David Perdue–or in her words, “send Perdue packing.” Tomlinson talked about problems and fixes, most notably expanding Medicaid. With experience both as an attorney and elected official, Tomlinson takes law and government seriously. She often discuses the Constitution and the role of government in people’s lives. Even before she was a Senate candidate, she spoke out on impeachment issues. She’s posted 14 policy papers on her website. Her major Democratic opponents, Sarah Riggs Amico and Jon Ossoff, have not troubled themselves with such details. It’s like she’s actually willing to prove her case that she’s…

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…

Poser or Poacher? Sen. Kelly Loeffler parades around in ad with a gun, but there’s a problem with that

Kemp supposedly picked Loeffler to appeal to suburban women who are turned off by Donald Trump for reasons that…

Trump, Kelly Loeffler struggle on Twitter after Chiefs’ victory

Photo: ESPN Jonathan Grant @Brambleman The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers to win this year’s Super Bowl. They had to come back from ten points down to do it. This makes me happy. I grew up in western Missouri and was a huge fan as a kid. Their victory against the Minnesota Vikings in 1970 was the greatest game ever played—until the UGA Bulldogs won the national championship on January 1, 1981. The Chiefs went through a 50-year drought before their next Super Bowl appearance.  So, even sweeter. I think I hand’ed the victory well. Nothing against the 49ers. It was a good game. You know who didn’t? Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who is quickly proving she’s not good…
