Fmr GOP Senator Announces Run for Governor: I’m Running ‘to Make Sure Stacey Abrams Is Never Governor of Georgia’

Former Republican Senator David Perdue is taking action so Democrats like Stacey Abrams never control the state of Georgia.

Perdue has officially announced his candidacy for the state’s gubernatorial race in the 2022 midterm elections.

Perdue said, “I’m running for governor to make sure Stacey Abrams is never governor of Georgia.”

“Make no mistake, Abrams will smile, lie, and cheat to transform Georgia into her radical vision of the state that would look more like California or New York,” he added.

He immediately calls out his radical left-wing opponent Stacey Abrams, who is a current Democratic gubernatorial candidate.

Abrams is predicted to be the Democratic frontrunner in the race.

Perdue also criticized current Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp because “he has failed all of us and cannot win in November.”

“Instead of protecting our elections, he caved to Abrams and cost us two Senate seats, the Senate majority, and gave Joe Biden free rein,” Perdue said in a statement.

“Think about how different it would be today is Kemp had fought Abrams first, instead of fighting Trump. Kemp caved before the election, and the country is paying the price today.”

Perdue, who served in the Senate from 2015 to 2021, touted his track record of creating jobs, and spending his life “in the real world.”

“We face an unprecedented onslaught from the woke left, in Georgia and across the country,” Perdue continued. “We cannot keep giving in, caving into their demands. We simply must fight back to protect Georgia.”

Some of the issues Perdue mentioned in the video are eliminating state income tax, making cities safer again, keeping parents involved in schools, and fighting Biden’s overreaching mandates, “like Florida’s doing,” Perdue said in the video.

“And let me be very clear: over my dead body will we ever give Stacey Abrams control of our elections again,” Perdue stated.
