Georgia Congressman Collins Selling 'Back to School' Masks

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) has been a strong proponent of re-opening schools for in-person instruction in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Previously opposed to mask mandates, Collins has backed Gov. Brian Kemp in strongly encouraging citizens to wear face coverings when in public, including school. Now the Georgia Congressman is urging people to wear masks while raising money for his campaign for United States Senate.

Collins backers can show their support by purchasing a mask from his online shop. The mask is blue, displays the campaign logo and is being sold for $15 plus shipping. "Stay safe and support your favorite conservative with this Collins for Senate face mask," the website says.

Collins will face off against Kelly Loeffler and a number of other candidates in a jungle primary this November. Campaign advertising from the Collins camp has been somewhat quiet so far, at least on television and radio.

"Starting in September, when people start paying attention, we'll be back on TV," Collins said earlier this month at a meet and greet in Clarkesville.

During that breakfast with constituents, Collins claimed Loeffler had spent $250 to every one dollar spent by his campaign on television advertising.

"The sad part about it is . . . she's still down," Collins pointed out.
