Perdue bus stops in Milledgeville

MILLEDGEVILLE — Republican U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue's 50-stop campaign bus came to Baldwin County Wednesday. Perdue, the cousin of former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, held a gathering at Jackson's on Sinclair. Heading into the May 20th Primary Election, most polls show the middle Georgia native and former Fortune 500 CEO ahead of other formidable party opponents Rep. Paul Broun, Rep. Phil Gingrey, Rep. Jack Kingston and former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel. The Republican primary victor will likely face Democrat Michelle Nunn in the July runoff. 'A lot of attention is on this race. Republicans cannot afford to give up this seat to a Democrat,' he said. Perdue said he's 'struck a nerve in this state' and calls himself 'an outsider business candidate.' The first time candidate said the Senate needs a business sense not career politicians. 'I just felt like we needed an alternative to the traditional political candidates,' he said. Perdue urged citizens to spread the word about early voting and Primary.
