Perdue to run for Georgia governor

Former United States Senator from Georgia David Perdue announced on Monday he will challenge Georgia Governor Brian Kemp in the Republican Party's primaries for the latter's incumbent position.

"I'm running for Governor to make sure [Georgia House of Representatives Minority Leader] Stacey Abrams is NEVER Governor of Georgia. We need bold conservatives who will stand up to the woke left, not cave to their radical demands," he tweeted.

In his full announcement, Perdue also criticized Kemp for not supporting former President Donald Trump his claims he won the 2020 presidential elections in Georgia. "Instead of protecting our elections, he caved to Abrams and cost us two Senate seats, the Senate majority, and gave [President] Joe Biden free rein," he wrote.
