The two have a special bond, as Perdue once served as Senate Majority Leader as a Democrat, and McKillip spent a few hours as House Minority Leader before hearing that the GOP caucus had cookies.
“McKillip is a man of deep faith and (a) sincere conservative,” Perdue said in a news release. “He is the Republican I trust to represent our conservative values in Atlanta, and I am proud to endorse him in his re-election.”
Perdue, who led state Senate Democrats before becoming Georgia’s first Republican governor in 130 years, praised McKillip’s 2010 party switch during a talk last week at the University of Georgia, calling it “courageous.” McKillip crossed the aisle just weeks after House Democrats elected him their No. 2 leader.
“I am proud to have the support of Governor Perdue,” McKillip said. “Sonny knows first hand the importance of faith in our lives. He knows like I do that it is up to us, through our hard work and conservative values, not the government, to turn this state and our economy around. I thank him for his support.”
