The Georgia GOP wasted no time before talking about its new Senate candidate, David Perdue, and noting the similarities between Perdue’s job creation record and the Governor’s record of job growth in the Peach State.
From a press release:
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, Republican Senate nominee David Perdue, and Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett gathered this morning at the GAGOP Headquarters in Buckhead to kick-off the General Election campaign.
“Having two proven job creators at the top of the ticket is a real asset for the Republican Party,” said GAGOP Chairman John Padgett. “David Perdue is a bold leader with a stellar record in business. We are confident in his ability to take on President Obama and Harry Reid’s handpicked candidate, Michelle Nunn, and look forward to working together in the trenches to ensure victory at the ballot box.”
“David and I have a lot in common,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “We are both the children of two public school teachers in the state of Georgia. Both of us grew up in middle Georgia. We know the values that Georgians hold.”
“I am excited about going to Washington to help fight some of the bad government policies that are keeping us from being all that we can be in this state,” said David Perdue. “My role in this campaign is to prosecute the failed record of this Democratic administration. I believe this economy is ready to bust out if we just take some common sense, free-enterprise principles and put them to bear.”
Clearly, there are differences in how the Democrats and Republicans view Perdue’s record in business. Discuss.
