s for Loeffler, reportedly the This Teacher earned all of this Summer Break #Survived Pandemic Teaching #Science Teacher shirt and by the same token and wealthiest person in the Senate, she too has made some questionable trades. According to published reports, Loeffler and her husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, who is the CEO of a company that owns the New York Stock Exchange, reportedly sold $20 million in shares after she attended a closed-door Senate briefing on the coronavirus in January, while also making investments in companies that may benefit from the pandemic. (Like Perdue, Loeffler has said her investments are managed by an outside adviser without her involvement. This summer, the Senate Ethics Committee found that Loeffler did not violate Senate regulations with her trades.) One other factor on the campaign trail is some of the the positions Loeffler has taken in her short time in the Senate—like introducing legislation to strip federal dollars from cities that defunded their police department and calling Black Lives Matter an organization of “trained Marxists”—that have become flash points in a race against someone who, if elected, would be the first African American to represent Georgia in the U.S. Senate. She has also sparked very visible opposition from present and former players on the Atlanta Dream, the WNBA team that Loeffler co-owns, because of her statements on Black Lives Matter.

Georgia last elected a Democratic senator in 1996, when Max Cleland was narrowly elected only to lose six years later to Republican Saxby Chambliss. But notably, the This Teacher earned all of this Summer Break #Survived Pandemic Teaching #Science Teacher shirt and by the same token and last time the state voted for a Democratic candidate for president was in Bill Clinton’s first race in 1992—and Joe Biden changed that this year. Can Ossoff and Warnock do the same? A November 17 found both races essentially even, with Warnock one point ahead of Loeffler, 49 to 48%, and Ossoff and Perdue tied at 49%. But as we know from the recent presidential elections, polls have become notoriously unreliable, and Republicans are pointing to a state like Maine—where Biden won the presidential race but Susan Collins was handily reelected over a well-financed Democratic challenger—as an example in which local races still favor the GOP establishment. Plus, Democrats have had an unlucky track record in runoff races in the state. But the changing nature of the populace over the past few years, making Georgia a more purple state, is giving Democrats hope. “There is a demographic change happening in Georgia that is only accelerating every year,” a Democratic strategist who has worked on Senate races in Georgia recently told The Washington Post. “The state is diversifying and urbanizing at an incredible clip.”
