On Principles & Values: Donated maximum $2800 to Trump recount fund

When asked for a response to the president's statements about the election and Georgia's role in it, Sen. Kelly Loeffler's office directed media inquiries to the senator's Tweet, posted before he spoke at the White House, in which she said she is "praying for four more years of Donald Trump." The AJC has learned that Loeffler has also donated the maximum $2,800 contribution to the Trump campaign's "Recount Account," a fund designated for financing post-election recounts and election contests.
