Georgians Still Haven’t Heard From David Perdue Since Tuesday

November 8, 2020

ATLANTA — Nearly a week after being forced into a January runoff and failing to gain support from a majority of Georgians, Senator David Perdue has refused to speak publicly to voters despite several attempts from the media to get in contact with him. Perdue is clearly hiding from his abysmal performance and failed platform. 

In the days leading up to Election Day, Perdue ran away from reporters in a desperate attempt to avoid answering tough questions about his reelection bid. Now, after his flailing campaign deeply underperformed, Perdue is dodging Georgians again even as voters can begin requesting absentee ballots for January’s runoff.

This is just the latest sign of Perdue’s weak candidacy after his historically bad closing days of the campaign. In the final week, Perdue abruptly pulled out of the last debate after Ossoff hammered Perdue for his harmful agenda to strip away critical protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions. 

Perdue notoriously hasn’t held a single public town hall in his entire six year Senate term and has refused to talk to his constituents. Multiple reports have exposed that Georgians “have not heard a lot from Senator Perdue” probably “by design.” 

“As the nation’s eyes are on Georgia, Senator Perdue is clearly hiding following his weak performance in Tuesday’s election,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Now that Donald Trump can’t bail Perdue’s campaign out, he’s scrambling to figure out his strategy. Georgia voters will vote Perdue out in January and reject his dangerous agenda that would take away health care from millions.”
