It’s not in the interest of a 51 year old career politician to accept an appointment for what may well be only a 11 month stint, especially since Georgia incumbency is pretty much a ticket to indefinite office occupancy.

Besides, it’s one thing to protect and praise Trump to continue to qualify for office, but quite another to work for the POtuS.

The problem for Trump in finding a place for Loeffler costs the cult $20 million in campaign financing.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
