Perdue Held a Private Fundraiser with Gov. Kemp, Embracing his Failed Coronavirus Response 

ATLANTA —  Yesterday, Senator David Perdue held a private fundraiser with Georgia Governor Brian Kemp who has downplayed the virus and stood in the way of local elected officials implementing common-sense coronavirus response measures. 

Perdue, who has not held a single public town hall in nearly six years and consistently dodges questions from the press, decided that a political fundraiser was a better use of his Tuesday than fighting to get Georgians the economic relief they desperately need. 

Rather than returning to Washington and working to deliver relief for the thousands of Georgians who are still out of work or at risk of losing their homes, Perdue has clearly made playing politics his top priority during this pandemic. Just last month Perdue complained that the coronavirus outbreak made campaigning “very difficult” because “[he’s] cancelled about 142 fundraising events because of COVID.”  

“Rather than returning to Washington to deliver economic relief for hard-working Georgians, Senator Perdue is raising money with a governor who has similarly shown failed leadership during this pandemic,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Georgians are tired of Senator Perdue putting himself first while families scrap for financial stability during this crisis – which is exactly why they will vote him out.”
