Georgia voters are finished with career politicians.
The July 22nd primary runoff elections signaled that Georgians are fed up with government that only works for corporate interests and the wealthy elite.
It’s clear we want new blood in public office.
Republican voters sent career politician Jack Kingston packing, in favor of multi-millionaire David Perdue.
Perdue is a former CEO of massive corporations. But he’s proven that he’s no leader.
While serving as the head of Dollar General, the company was sued for gender pay discrimination and closed 400 stores. Prior to that, his cut-and-run strategy as CEO of Pillowtex led to more than 7,000 layoffs, while he pocketed $2.4 million for just 10 months of work.
Perdue has a history of looking out for himself while others suffer. He brags about not being a career politician (yet), but his loyalties lie with corporate interests — not the people of Georgia. And now he’s using his millions to self-fund his Senate campaign.
This is not the future that Georgians want.
We need real leaders who will put the interests of Georgians first.
We already have a statewide elected official, worth millions, who consistently puts the needs of millionaires ahead of regular Georgians.
His name is Nathan Deal.
Thanks to Gov. Deal, our state unemployment rate remains high, rural hospitals are closing, hundreds of thousands of Georgians remain uninsured and our public school system is crumbling.
Like Gov. Deal, David Perdue has a record of putting his own self-interest first.
Georgians can’t afford to elect another me-first politician like Nathan Deal.
The Deal/Perdue ticket will say or do just about anything to stop Jason Carter and Michelle Nunn this fall, even if it means ignoring the needs of average Georgians.
This election is too important for us to let that happen.
