Senator Kelly Loeffler visits Albany
(ALBANY, GA) – It was a packed house on Dawson Road Monday afternoon as dozens came out to show their support for Georgia senator, Kelly Loeffler.
The U.S. senator stopped in to Albany to speak with locals ahead of Election Day.
“This is a very important place in Georgia. Y’all have dealt with so much during the pandemic from day one. And you’ve been in my heart and prayers since the start. I just want to commend all of you as a community for how you’ve gotten through this,” said Senator Loeffler.
Loeffler, who won the senate seat earlier this year following Johnny Isakson’s decision to resign, spoke with Albany residents about with what she plans to do for farms and small businesses impacted by the pandemic if re-elected.
She tells us, “I think employment is the way to solve so many of the challenges in this country. Education and healthcare, these are things i’ve been focusing on in the senate since day one, and also standing up for our farmers and our veterans.”
With agriculture being a major part of Southwest Georgia’s economy, Senator Loeffler wants to make sure as part of her campaign that protecting farmers and the supply chain takes precedence.
She says, “Our supply chains, our food supply chains could be at risk, so we always have to be one step ahead about how to protect our food security in this country. And that starts with understanding how vital agri-business is in our country.”
Loeffler is running against Raphael Warnock in the 2020 election.
