According to Atlanta media former Georgia Senator David Perdue had a phone call with President Trump that did not go well and led to Perdue changing his mind on a run for office after previously filing paperwork to do so. Hopefully this report is accurate, and President Trump is starting to lay the groundwork for MAGA-minded challengers to enter the political world and challenge the establishment republican candidates.
GEORGIA – Former Sen. David Perdue announced Tuesday he will not challenge Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) for his seat in the 2022 midterms, reversing course after filing paperwork declaring his candidacy.
In a statement first sent by email to supporters, Perdue (R-Ga.) said that he and his wife, Bonnie, had decided against him re-entering the political arena.
“This is a personal decision, not a political one. I am confident that whoever wins the Republican Primary next year will defeat the Democrat candidate in the General election for this seat and I will do everything I can to make that happen,” the former senator wrote, saying he had come to this decision “after much prayer and reflection.” (read more)
