Perdue begins statewide bus tour in Perry

PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue went back to his home roots Saturday afternoon for a barbecue in Perry.

The lunch kicked off his bus tour around the state, making one last push before election day May 20th.

Perdue greeted more than 100 people at the event, including Perry Mayor Jimmy Faircloth.

Former governor of Georgia Sonny Perdue, David’s cousin, was the guest speaker.

Perdue said the tour was a culmination of the hard work his team had put in during the last year listening to people.

Perdue said he loved kicking off his bus tour in his hometown, and he said he would be going to places he may have not been before to introduce himself and listen to voters.

“Well look, this is the American dream right?” said Perdue. “I started right here. My mom and my dad were teachers right here in Houston County. My dad was a school superintendent here. We had farms right down the road. It was a great life, we grew up modestly and I was very blessed in my career. And that’s what I’m really fighting for is to make sure my kids and their kids have the same opportunities.”

Sonny Perdue’s message to the crowd included strong support for his cousin,
saying even if he wasn’t related and hadn’t grown up with David, he still thinks he’s the man to change Washington for the better.
