Major developments in the federal investigation into Senator Richard Burr’s possible insider trading has cast an even bigger spotlight on three vulnerable GOP incumbents: Senator Kelly Loeffler already earned a “sharp warning” from the Securities and Exchange Commission and David Perdue’s questionable stock transactions are under increasing scrutiny. Senator Thom Tillis was also asked about the developments today, and he deferred to “the leader” Mitch McConnell instead of taking his own position.

“This latest development in the investigation into allegations of illegal insider trading puts Senators Loeffler and Perdue on notice for their own shady stock transactions and serves as a reminder that spineless Senator Tillis always bows to McConnell instead of taking a stand for what’s right,” said DSCC spokesperson Helen Kalla. “The corruption, self-dealing, and cowardice are why these Republicans are some of the most vulnerable Senate incumbents in the country, and why voters are going to fire them in November.”
