The back story is....

The georgia gov'na that Trump helped win by .00000003% skin of his teeth, didnt take take Trumps advice and choose Collins for Senator to replace the aging current Ga retiring senator

The govenor picked some floosy gal. And the fear is she'll be easily beaten in a purple state in 2020.


Probably feels like he is working his ass off and surrounded by idiots every day in both parties

Early life, education, and early career
Born in Gainesville, Georgia, Collins is a graduate of North Hall High School.[1] He attended North Georgia College & State University, where he received a B.A. in Political Science and Criminal law, in 1988. He attended the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, receiving his Master of Divinity in 1996. Collins also earned his Juris Doctor from Atlanta's John Marshall Law School, in 2007.[2]

Collins worked as an intern for Georgia Congressman Ed Jenkins before working as a salesman, selling hazardous material safety products to Georgia's state and local governments.[3] From 1994 to 2005, Collins was a senior pastor at Chicopee Baptist Church, while co-owning a scrapbooking retail store with his wife, Lisa.[4][5] Collins worked as a lawyer, and has been a managing partner at the Collins and Csider law firm since 2010.[6]

Military service
In the late 1980s, Collins served two years in the United States Navy, as a navy chaplain. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Collins joined the United States Air Force Reserve Command, where he presently serves as a chaplain (lieutenant colonel).[7] As a member of the 94th Airlift Wing at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Georgia, Collins was deployed to Balad Air Base for five months in 2008, during the Iraq War.

I don't know anything about the Georgian, but I haven't seen or heard anything yet that I dislike about Pence.

I like Collins; so far so good. He's willing to fight the Left which is important these days.

We have what appear to be some good ones in there now that are willing to take the fight to those crooked leftists. Collins; Jordan; Nunes; Gaetz; Gohmert. Seems like they are fed up with the BS. They are my kind of guys.

Now if the Senate could get some more in there that could grow a pair and fight, it would be even better.
