Perdue’s declare that Georgia is just not a blue state is true, however additionally it is not a pink state anymore. It’s purple. His assertion that the extra Georgians vote, the higher Republicans do is absurdly false. Georgia had a document turnout in 2020, and Democrats gained the presidential election and two Senate seats.
What Perdue actually means is that Republicans can only win when Democrats aren’t allowed to vote. There stays a ton of delusion and denial among the many Trump faction of the Georgia Republican Celebration. With out Perdue as a candidate, Sen. Warnock may find yourself operating towards Marjorie Taylor Greene, which might be a dream come true for Democrats.
Perdue was a McConnell chosen candidate, and with out him within the race, the chances are growing that Trumper zealot is the Georgia 2022 Senate nominee.
