Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., points out that his Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff ‘raised twice as much money in California as he did in the state of Georgia.’
EXCLUSIVE: Former Sen. David Perdue filed Federal Election Commission paperwork Monday to become a candidate to run for Senate in 2022, Fox News has learned.
Perdue, who lost re-election to Sen. Jon Osoff, D-Ga., during Georgia’s Senate runoff election on Jan. 5, filed FEC paperwork on Monday evening, designating a “principal campaign committee” titled: “Perdue for Senate.”
