Former Sen. David Perdue recently launched a television ad attacking Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. Perdue is challenging Kemp in Georgia’s gubernatorial primary, which will occur on May 24, 2022.
In the ad, Perdue asserts that Kemp is a sellout and blames Kemp for the nation’s many problems.
Specifically, Perdue states, “Illegals flooding our border, skyrocketing gas prices, crippling inflation, the brink of war, folks, that all started right here when Brian Kemp sold us out and allowed radicals to steal the election.”
By virtue of his ad, Perdue is trying to connect the nation’s many problems to Kemp’s unwillingness or inability to defend President Trump during the 2020 election process in Georgia.
Perdue appears to be saying that had Kemp fought harder to protect the election process in Georgia during the 2020 election, the outcome could have been different. Had the outcome been different, America would not be in such a perilous position today.
As reported by Breitbart, and according to Perdue’s campaign, the goal of the new ad is to “motivate Republican primary voters” and “sway undecideds who believe something happened with the 2020 election but may not have connected the dots to Kemp.”
According to various polls, Trump-endorsed Perdue has consistently trailed Kemp by ten points or more. Time will tell if this new approach helps close the gap with Kemp. The two will also have three debates ahead of next month’s primary.
