Gary Black, the Georgia Ag Commissioner from Commerce, is endorsing US Senate candidate Doug Collins, the Republican Congressman from Gainesville. Collins is looking to unseat incumbent Senate appointee Kelly Loeffler in a special election that will be held in November.
“We trust you to lead. We trust you to defend all life, extend the blessings of liberty and ensure the opportunity for the pursuit of happiness for all of our citizens,” Black wrote in a letter. “Press on.”

Besides Governor Brian Kemp, Loeffler’s main supporters include Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan and the National Republican Senatorial Committee. She also has nabbed endorsements from several national figures, including former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and ex-U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Collins has responded with recent endorsements from U.S. Rep. Drew Ferguson -- the first Republican member of Georgia’s congressional delegation to take sides – as well as Public Service Commissioner Bubba McDonald and former U.S. Rep. Karen Handel.
