But Carter also had nice things to say about Loeffler.
“She has, I think, done an outstanding job thus far,” Carter said. “She is our sitting senator, and I’ll continue to work with her.”
U.S. Rep. Drew Ferguson, R-West Point, described Collins and Loeffler as “two absolutely great candidates” who each would reliably support conservative causes in Washington.
But he was tight-lipped -- literally -- when asked whether he would endorse either candidate.
Ferguson declined to answer the question. Instead, he pressed his lips together and shrugged his shoulders.
Carter said he doesn’t know yet if he will endorse anyone.
“It makes for a very difficult situation, as you can imagine,” he said. “But, fortunately, the good news is we’ve got two fine candidates.”
