Sen. Perdue Tells Republicans Georgia Is “In Play”

1 min read

Republican Senator David Perdue told a group of Republicans that his state of Georgia is up for grabs in this fall’s election. In 2016, Trump only won Georgia’s electoral votes by 5. 1% and Republican Brian Kemp won the governor’s race in 2018 by only 1.4%. Stacey Abrams, who came up short in the governor’s race is actively seeking to be Joe Biden’s running mate.…

“Here’s the reality: The state of Georgia is in play,” Perdue said Monday, according to an audio recording of a call with “Women for Trump” obtained by CNN. “The Democrats have made it that way.”

Georgia is especially important since both senate seats, including Perdue’s, and  appointed Senator Kelly Loeffler’s are up for election. Loeffler is facing a strong challenge in the primary.

Further complicating the situation is Governor Kemp’s decision to reopen Georgia for business even as the pandemic is bringing more deaths to the state.…

7 p.m.:  The Department of Public Health has recorded 44 coronavirus deaths across the state since 11:30 a.m., bringing Georgia’s toll to 1,095, Chelsea Prince and Zachary Hansen report.  In addition, the DPH added 360 confirmed cases of COVID-19 to the state’s count, bringing the total number of cases to 25,634.
