Perdue rules out 2022 Senate bid against Warnock
By Max Greenwood - 02/23/21 10:25 AM EST


Former Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) on Tuesday ruled out a Senate bid in next year’s midterm elections, somewhat soothing concerns of a potentially contentious Republican primary in 2022.

In an email to supporters, Perdue said that his decision to forego another Senate campaign was “personal” rather than political. But the announcement came a day after former Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) opened the door to a rematch against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) in 2022.

“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. “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.”


“As we saw in my race in November, Georgia is not a blue state. The more Georgians that vote, the better Republicans do. These two current liberal US Senators do not represent the values of a majority of Georgians.”

Considering that he wasn't willing to run against Ossoff either, this is good news.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

I heard that Mr. Perdue made his "decision" after a conversation with Mr. Trump.
Would like to have been the fly on the wall for that one...!
