Fresh off her stunning second place victory Georgia's Senate election, Kelly Loeffler has come up with A PLAN to fix Georgia elections. And it is ... a PAC, of course.

Call it "Unfair Fight" Action Committee. Not because that's what Loeffler calls it she'd prefer the name "Greater Georgia" but because it is so transparently modeled on Stacey Abrams's Fair Fight group that registered hundreds of thousands of new voters for the 2020 election. And it's off to a rip-roaring start.

"Empty timeline?" Three whole likes? Yes, that is weird! And entirely predictable for someone who ran such an incompetent campaign after being gifted a Senate seat.

"It's the culmination of what I learned and what I saw firsthand in Georgia's biggest election in its history," Loeffler told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in her first interview since getting booted out of office on January 5. "You often learn more when you're not successful than when you are, and that's our starting point."

Which appears to have been the case with Abrams, who lost her 2018 race against Georgia's Governor Brian Kemp, and then flipped the whole damn state blue. But you can color us highly skeptical that Loeffler, a dilettante who never won an election in her life and was appointed to office because she was presumed to have the money to maintain it and the sense not to embarrass herself (nope and nope), can replicate the success of a career politician with a strong connection to the base of her party.

Loeffler's theory is that there are two million Georgians who would turn into reliable Republican voters if only someone would reach out and ask them. This seems wildly optimistic, since the state's entire population is only 11 million, and almost five million people turned out to vote last year. It's not clear where she plans to find another two million voters, all of them Republicans, in a state where a third of the population is Black and approximately 20 percent of the residents are under 18.
