U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue visits Kathleen, prepares for runoff election
KATHLEEN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue was back in Middle Georgia Saturday.
He stopped by Kathleen for a catfish fry.
He talked with with dozens of people about his beliefs.
Perdue is a businessman by trade.
He says his business experience can provide some fresh thought for Congress.
“It’s a full-blown crisis,” said Perdue. “And I think it was caused by our career-long politicians. I don’t think we can trust them to fix it. This debt is outrageous, it’s the greatest threat to our national security. I’ve got a 40-year background in business.”
Perdue pointed out his opponent, Congressman Jack Kingston, is a career-long politician.
The primary run off vote is July 22nd.
“With only 10 people in the United States Senate who have any free enterprise experience, I just felt like we needed some fresh thought–somebody from the outside of the political world to go up and try to make a difference in this crisis,” said Perdue.
