DALLAS, Ga. (AP) — Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia enthusiastically accepted an endorsement from Marjorie Taylor Greene, a congressional candidate who has embraced baseless QAnon conspiracy theories and has espoused racist views.
Loeffler and Greene made the announcement together Thursday at an open-air pavilion in a public park on the outskirts of metro Atlanta, where suburbs begin to give way to rural farmland.
The endorsement highlights Loeffler’s embrace of far-right politics as she tries to fend off a challenge from Republican Rep. Doug Collins.
Collins is a four-term congressman who is one of President Donald Trump’s most visible defenders in Congress.
The top Democrat in the race is Raphael Warnock.
