I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Social conservatives are concerned about the Georgia governor's choice for U.S. Senate.

Governor Brian Kemp (R-Georgia) has selected Atlanta businesswoman and political novice Kelly Loeffler to replace outgoing Senator Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia), who is retiring at the end of the year.

"A lot of us among the social conservative community don't believe she has any conservative bona fides, and she has some problematic connections," said Sarah Perry, the Family Research Council's director of partnerships, on Tony Perkins' Washington Watch radio show. "She has been on the board of directors of Grady Memorial Hospital, tied to Emory University, which has one of the largest abortion doctor training grounds in the country. And she hired Stacey Abrams' law firm to do legal work for the WNBA franchise, the team that show owns."

Governor Kemp ran against Stacey Abrams in Georgia's gubernatorial election.

"[Loeffler] also made very sizeable donations to Mitt Romney's failed 2012 presidential campaign," Perry continued. "So, what she looks like to many of us in the socially conservative community is someone who is not only concerning from a policy standpoint -- where she is with abortion, where she might be with capitalism versus socialism -- but also from a political standpoint, because this financial executive has never held political office."

Perry went on to say that Loeffler "looks like she talks a good game, but a lot of us are very concerned about where she might actually vote."
