7. Stacey Abrams only lost to Kemp because he cheated, in a race he controlled as SoS.

In a fair race, she would have won. Keisha Lance Bottoms is well liked overall as mayor of Atlanta. You make a good point, though. It's not that we don't elect women at all, it's that so far we haven't done so for the highest offices. I'd love to see that change, but not with Kelly Loeffler.

In Loeffler's case, I wish more people would point out that, unlike Warnock, she's not a native Georgian and has only lived in the state a comparatively short time. She would not be where she is if she hadn't been appointed. There are plenty of reasons other than her sex for Georgians to be wary of her given her husband is chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, and she was among those in Congress involved in COVID related insider trading charges. The reasons why charges were dropped against everyone but Sen. Richard Burr are suspect.

Frankly, I think if you are married to the chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, your potential conflicts of interest should disqualify you before you even get out of the gate. Maybe that's just me.

I know Warnock is a principled man and not one to engage in mudslinging - and good for him - but if he could point out a few salient facts, that might go a long way.
