Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Georgia, told ESPN on Tuesday she does not intend to sell her stake in the Atlanta Dream as the league embraces the “Black Lives Matter” cause she has discredited recently.
“They can’t push me out for my views,” Loeffler told ESPN. “I intend to own the team. I am not going.”
Dream player Renee Montgomery opted out of the 22-game 2020 WNBA season that will take place at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, to pursue social justice causes. Other players in the league have made similar decisions.
