“While my heart breaks at not being able to continue to serve Georgia and America, I’m tremendously proud of all we achieved together,” Loeffler said in her video.

She also pledged to continue to fight for the American dream and to protect conservative values.

“Rest assured: The fight to advance the American dream is far from over,” she said. “The fight to protect conservative values is far from over. And the fight against socialism and the radical agenda of the left is very far from over.

“I fully intend to stay in this fight for freedom, for our values, and for the future of this great country," she concluded.
