Perdue Makes 2022 Campaign Decision

Former Republican Sen. David Perdue said Tuesday that he has decided not to run for Senate in Georgia again 2022, calling it a “personal decision, not a political one.”

The decision comes after Perdue last week filed Federal Election Commission paperwork to become a candidate in the 2022 midterms. Perdue lost reelection to Sen. Jon Ossoff, D-Ga., during Georgia’s Senate runoff election on Jan. 5.

“After much prayer and reflection, Bonnie and I have decided that we will not enter the race for the United States Senate in Georgia in 2022,” Perdue said in a statement Tuesday. “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,” Perdue continued. “As we saw in my race in November, Georgia is not a blue state. The more Georgians that vote, the better Republicans do.”
