David Perdue lost re-election to Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA) in Georgia’s Senate runoff election on January 5, with Ossoff winning by just over 93,000 votes (2%). It now seems that Perdue is considering a 2022 Senate run against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA), who beat Kelly Loeffler in Georgia’s special election.
According to Fox News, Perdue filed Federal Election Commission (FEC) paperwork on Monday evening “to become a candidate to run for Senate in 2022.” The paperwork designated a “principal campaign committee,” titled “Perdue for Senate.”
Warnock defeated Loeffler — who was appointed to the U.S. Senate by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp on December 4, 2019, after Johnny Isakson announced his resignation for health reasons — on January 5, also by just over 93,000 votes.
“Perdue has not formally announced his candidacy for 2022, but the filing of paperwork on Monday is a key step in that direction, a source familiar told Fox News, saying the former senator will be making a final decision in the weeks ahead,” reported Fox News.
