Race for Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s Senate Seat:

On November 3, 2020, there will be a special election to fill the remaining two years of the six-year term that Johnny Isakson (R) was elected to in 2016.  A general runoff election, if needed, is scheduled for January 5, 2021. The filing deadline for this election was March 6, 2020.

Isakson said that he would resign at the end of 2019 on August 28, 2019, citing his health. On December 4, 2019, Gov. Brian Kemp (R) appointed Kelly Loeffler (R) to fill the seat Loeffler is running in the election.

Loeffler will serve until the special election winner takes office in January 2021.

 

The special election winner will serve until the 2022 general election winner takes office in January 2023.

Loeffler’s Senate seat will not have a primary election, and will not appear on any ballot for the June 9 Primary Election. All candidates, including Incumbent Loeffler and all candidates, regardless of party, will vie for the seat in the Special Election, to be held on Nov. 3 in conjunction with the General Election.

 

Currently, there are 21 candidates who have filed to run for the Special Election for Loeffler’s senate seat, including Loeffler and Doug Collins, who currently serves as the U.S. Representative for the 9th Congressional District which serves Stephens County.

 

Both Loeffler and Collins are Republican, the remaining 19 candidates are split between four Republicans, eight Democrats, one Libertarian, four Independents, one Green Party candidate, and one write-in candidate.

ConnectLocal will provide further coverage of these candidates prior to the Dec. 3 Special Election.
