Perdue

United States Senate Republican candidate David Perdue started the last day of his statewide bus tour on Saturday morning at the Redneck Cafe in downtown Newnan.

Perdue thanked everyone for being there and reminded them of the two reasons why he was running for a seat in the U.S. Senate.

I think I can make a difference and get the economy moving again, and I think a lot of problems we have in DC are because we do not have term limits, he said.

“I think we need more common-sense business men in Washington,” he added.

He concluded his remarks by reminding everyone to vote on May 20, as well as encouraging them to get their friends to vote, too.

Perdue is the former CEO of Dollar General. His statewide bus tour concluded Saturday at his campaign office in Atlanta.
