Sen. Kelly Loeffler, one of two Georgia Republicans running in the crucial Jan. 5 runoff race that will determine control over the Senate, is trying to distance herself from a lifelong white supremacist she took a selfie with last week. Doles has a long history of racist violence, including a 1993 beating of a Black man at a Maryland traffic light. He also took part in the violent 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, where one counterprotester was killed. Doles told the AP that he’s denounced white supremacy since 2017, allegedly going as far as to address his past in front of an all-Black church congregation. If the two conservative incumbents lose, the Senate will be locked 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, which would make Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tie-breaking vote.
