The Governor of Georgia Brian Kemp is expected to appoint Kelly Loeffler who is the CEO of Bakkt exchange for a United States senate seat next week. As the reports from Atlanta’s local news outlet AJC showed on November 29, Kemp plans to choose Loeffler in an attempt to expand the appeal of the Republican party to women. The Bakkt CEO also backs the President Trump, even though the satisfaction is not mutual.
However, the president Donald Trump is apparently not interested or a fan of Loeffler. As AJC reported, if nominated, the Bakkt CEO will become just the second woman to serve in the United States Senate from Georgia.
Loeffler has been featured in the cryptocurrency news as a person who could easily finance GOP activities and with her personal fortune – to break fundraising records. And while the Bakkt CEO backs Trump and said that she wants to strengthen the border, shut down drug and human trafficking, lower healthcare costs and many other things, Trump is not sold on the CEO of the exchange.
“If chosen, I will stand with President Trump, Senator David Perdue, and you to Keep America Great” Loeffler said.
This sea tis currently occupied by Johny Isakson who is known as a veteran in the Senate waters. He will leave the Senate at year’s end because of health problems. According to unspecificed Republican Party officials, Kemp is expected to publicly announce Loeffler and its appointment at press conference occurring next week.
However, the President of United States is not a fan of the Bakkt CEO. A while ago, various party leaders (including the President Donald Trump) pressed to choose US representative Doug Collings instead. The Republican leaders saw a lot in Collins because of his strong support for Trump, gun rights and anti-abortion efforts.
The President as well as many among his followers are not completely sold on Loeffler and are apparently viewing her as too moderate. The outlet also showed that Kemp met with the President and Loeffler last week to discuss and try to obtain Trump’s approval of his pick for the Senate. However, the meeting was to no avail.
Meanwhile, we can see that as Bakkt CEO backs Trump, the institutional interest is on the rise and now increases. Bakkt, for instance ,is having another of the daily volume records.
