VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - David Perdue is hoping his stop in Valdosta will help him win Georgia's extremely close U-S Senate race.
Perdue was at the Smoke n'' Pig in Valdosta Friday morning to talk to voters. Former Arkansas governor and current Fox News host Mike Huckabee was also there campaigning for Perdue, as was David Perdue's cousin, former Georgia governor Sunny Perdue.
David Perdue told voters he believes President Obama is hurting Georgians and he wants to change that. "Anyway you wanna look at it, this guy is failing us. I don't know what his agenda is, but he seems to have checked out these last two years. He wants Michelle Nunn to go to Washington and fight for him. I wanna go to Washington and fight for you," said Perdue.
Huckabee said David Perdue would be a refreshing change in the Senate. "It'd be awfully nice to have someone goin' to the U.S. Senate who took their brain with them. David Perdue will take his brain with him when he goes to Washington," Huckabee emphasized.
The race between David Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn is expected to be the closest U.S. Senate race in the country, and the outcome of the race could decide whether Republicans or Democrats will have control in the Senate.
