Former Senator David Perdue announced on Tuesday that he will not participate in the 2022 U.S. Senate election in Georgia.
Why it matters: The 2022 election will play a key role in determining which party controls the Senate after the Republicans (including Perdue) have lost two Georgia seats to Democrats in the two elections last month.
- Perdue and Sen now have a more intense match. Jon Ossoff (Jon Ossoff) performed better than his Republican colleague Kelly Loeffer to the current senator. Rafael Warnock.
- Since Warnock ran away in a special election, he will make up for Loveler’s re-election in 2022 and former Rep. Doug Collins is one of the challenges Republicans consider.
What are they talking about: “This is a personal decision, not a political decision. I firmly believe that the person who wins the Republican primary next year will defeat the Democratic candidate in the general election, and I will do my best to achieve this goal.”
- “As we saw in the November election, Georgia is not a blue state. The more Georgians voting, the better the Republican Party’s performance. These two current liberal U.S. senators do not represent The values of most Georgians.”
