Perdue ‘leaning heavily’ toward challenging Warnock in Georgia

Must read

“He is close to making a decision, leaning heavily towards it, but will decide in [the] next few weeks,” the adviser said.

Perdue would start with a hefty sum in his campaign account: He had $5.7 million left over weeks after the runoff, according to a filing with the FEC late last month.

Perdue lost by slightly more than a percentage point in January after running nearly 2 points ahead of Ossoff in November. Ossoff won a full term and will not be on the ballot again until 2026.

Warnock defeated Loeffler by 2 points, running slightly ahead of Ossoff. The state will be a critical battleground for control of the Senate in 2022: Democrats currently control the 50-50 chamber, with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking ties.

Loeffler is also considering running again in a rematch against Warnock, as is former Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), who finished third in the special election in November.
