Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) left critics baffled on Monday with a new ad that claims she’s more conservative than Attila the Hun ― a brutal 5th century warlord.
The spot begins with a man and woman seated on a couch watching television. The woman asks: “Did you know that Kelly Loeffler was ranked the most conservative senator in America?”
“Yep, she’s more conservative than Attila the Hun,” the man responds. The ad then launches into a scene involving two men costumed as the ancient ruler and an assistant. Attila grunts repeatedly while his aide takes notes.
The scribe translates his agenda as “Fight China,” “Attack big government” and “Eliminate the liberal scribes.”
A narrator’s voice then says, “More conservative than Attila the Hun. Kelly Loeffler: 100% Trump voting record,” featuring a snap of Loeffler grinning beside President Donald Trump.
Loeffler, one of the richest members of Congress, was a business executive before her appointment last December to a seat vacated when Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson resigned citing health concerns. She is running against Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), a Trump ally, and the Rev. Raphael Warnock (D) and 18 others in November’s multi-candidate special election. Members of the WNBA team Loeffler co-owns, the Atlanta Dream, have been publicly campaigning to elect Warnock after the senator denounced the league’s support of Black Lives Matter.
Her competitors chimed in about the widely panned ad:
.@KLoeffler is so uncomfortable discussing conservative values that she hired an actor to make grunting noises rather than do it herself. FYI Attila the Hun was an open-borders globalist who killed christians and practiced postnatal abortion. https://t.co/x1VksJft4U— Doug Collins (@CollinsforGA) September 21, 2020
