David Perdue (born December 10, 1949 in Macon, Georgia, USA) is an American businessman and politician who has served in the US Senate since 2015-21 and represents Georgia. He is a member of the Republican Party. Former senator David Perdue announced his candidacy in the Senate race and called his political committee Perdue for the Senate election cycle in 2022. Senator David Perdue – who lost his seat in Georgia in the last election but will run without a vote again – said he is considering running against newly elected democratic Sen Raphael Warnock in 2022.
His life before entering politics
Perdue began working as a management consultant before holding leadership positions in a number of large companies, including Sara Lee where he built the company’s first headquarters in Asia, Reebok and Dollar General; the last two being headed by him as chief executive officer. He married and he and his wife Bonnie have two children.
The announcement came a day after Mr. Perdue made what became a ritual trip for Republicans to the private club of former president Donald J. Trump in Florida last Friday for dinner and an extended golf round:
If no candidate wins more than 50 percent of the vote in November 3 election, a runoff will take place between Perdue and Ossoff in January 2021. In December 2020, Perdue backed a lawsuit by Trump allies seeking to overturn the election result. After failing to win more than 50% of the vote in the election, he claimed, without evidence, that failure to win would have required the resignation of Georgia’s Foreign Minister Brad Raffensperger.
Former Republican senator, David Perdue of Georgia announced after his meet with Trump that Perdue will not run for the 2022 Georgia Senate Seat, just days after filing documents to explore a possible candidacy. Perdue lost his re-election bid to Democrat Jon Ossoff in a Senate runoff last month. The Georgia Republican lost his Senate seat after ran against Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, who defeated former Republican senator. Kelly Loeffler in a thrashing to fill the remaining term of the former Republican senator. Johnny Isakson.
Democrat Jon Ossoff, the first Jewish senator from Georgia and, at 33, the youngest sitting US senator, suffered a defeat and won a historic victory over Raphael Warnock, who became the state’s first black senator. It took several days for the runoff elections in Georgia to be confirmed, and the candidates in the runoff did not immediately take office.
A little over a week after announcing his candidacy for the Senate, the former Georgia governor Perdue announced that he will not seek re-election:
He has yet to file campaign documents, paving the way for him to run again against Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock. Perdue lost his re-election bid last month in a highly anticipated runoff against Democrat Jon Ossoff. Ossoff’s win and Warnock’s win over Senator Kelly Loeffler saw the Democrats take control of the Senate for the first time since 2011.
