Sen. David Perdue is one of Donald Trump’s most loyal and most outspoken defenders.
But Trump’s Federal Elections Commission determined that Sen. Perdue took in more than $325,000 that exceeded legal limits on campaign donations in his 2014 campaign and also took more than $117,000 in prohibited contributions, according to recent news reports. On top of that, the FEC also found the GOP Senate campaign failed to disclose $128,972 in debts and obligations.
The campaign reached a settlement to pay $30,000 in fines just ahead of Sen. Perdue’s re-election campaign.
