Perdue visits Newnan during run-off campaign
by Wes Mayer
David Perdue, who is running for U.S. Senate, visited Newnan Thursday morning to speak to locals at the Redneck Gourmet.
“We have been in Newnan a lot,” Perdue said. “Newnan is a very conservative base, and it’s important to continue to meet people and get the word out about our mission and the election.”
Perdue’s platform is to reduce the federal debt, install term limits, repeal Obamacare and protect the Second Amendment. He also supports a balanced budget amendment, tax reform, energy independence and local control of education.
Perdue is running in a Republican runoff election against Jack Kingston on July 22. The winner of that election will go on to run against Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn for the U.S. Senate post being vacated by Saxby Chambliss.
Kingston and Nunn have also campaigned in Coweta County in recent weeks.
