Nikki Haley, former S.C. governor and United Nations ambassador, to attend
Some high profile Republicans will be in Walton County on Friday in support of U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in her efforts to hold onto her Senate seat in the upcoming election.
Loeffler was appointed by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp to fill the seat vacated by former Sen. Johnny Isakson when he retired at the end of last year. She was sworn in on Jan. 6 and is now in a tight race to hold onto that seat for a full 6-year term. She is facing tough competition from fellow Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Collins and Atlanta Democrat the Rev. Raphael Warnock who is currently leading in a very full all-comers race. The top two vote-getters will face off in a run-off election as nobody is expected to get the 50 % plus one required for an outright win.
Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and United Nations Ambassador, will join Loeffler, Kemp, Georgia first lady Marty Kemp and appointed acting insurance and fire safety commissioner, John King at the Walton County Historic Courthouse at noon on Friday, Oct. 30.
