Both Republican Georgia Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue have come out in support of President Trump’s push for the $2,000 stimulus checks.
But Democrats are trying to actively tie them to McConnell, who has not taken a decisive stand on the stimulus checks. McConnell said Tuesday that the Senate will “begin a process” and would bring Trump’s stimulus check demand and other remaining issues “into focus.”
