Perdue Joins Election Lawsuit


  Georgia Republican David Perdue is furthering his embrace of debunked claims that Georgia’s 2020 presidential election was wrongly decided by joining a lawsuit claiming that fraudulent or counterfeit ballots were counted in Fulton County in the 2020 general election.

Since entering the 2022 Republican primary for governor on Monday, Perdue has been seeking to sew up the votes of Trump backers who believe the election was stolen. The former senator has said he wouldn’t have certified Georgia’s 2020 results if he had been governor then.
Former President Donald Trump is backing Perdue in his challenge to incumbent GOP Gov. Brian Kemp, saying in an endorsement Monday that Kemp has been “very weak” on “election integrity.”
