ATLANTA – (CNN) One of President Trump’s staunchest allies in the House of Representatives will reportedly try to switch chambers in November.
Representative Doug Collins plans to announce a senate run, according to a Republican source in his home state of Georgia.
But the move would likely set up a bitter intra-party fight with current GOP Senator Kelly Loeffler.
She was sworn in earlier this month, replacing fellow Republican Johnny Isakson, who retired.
Loeffler describes herself as pro-Trump.
But she was appointed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp even though trump was pushing hard for Collins.
Loeffler is required to run for re-election in November by Georgia law.
