President Donald Trump hosted a fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday in honor of David Perdue, a Republican candidate for the 2022 Georgia Governor’s race.
“Thank you all for being here to support a true America First warrior and the next Governor of the great state of Georgia, David Perdue,” said Trump.
The cost to attend the luxurious reception was $3,000, and those with larger pockets could take a photo with President Trump and the former senator for $24,200. The proceeds will narrow his financial gap with Gov. Brian Kemp, R-Ga., the anti-Trump Republican who came under fire during the 2020 presidential election after he failed to strengthen election integrity within the Peach State.
Trump called Perdue a “fearless and outstanding conservative leader.” The winner of the GOP primary will likely face off against the Democrat nominee, Stacey Abrams, in November for the general election. To that point, Trump adamantly stated that David Perdue is the “Only” candidate capable of defeating the radical leftwing Democrat.
Referring to when Perdue was a senator, Trump stated, “David stood up to the Radical Left-and he was always a champion for strong, secure borders.” According to the 45th president, Perdue will “restore” the state’s election process, eliminate Georgia’s state income tax, and recognize parents as the top authority within public schools.
After praising Perdue, Trump turned his attention to the “Horrendous RINO” establishment Republican Brian Kemp.
Trump blasted him as a traitor to Republican voters and the state of Georgia. Moreover, Trump insinuated that Kemp is weak and that he has “Repeatedly surrendered to Stacey Abrams and the Radical Left.” Blaming Kemp for the “abolishment” of signature verification, Trump said that a vote for “RINO Brian Kemp in this primary is a vote for Governor Stacey Abrams.”
“A vote for David Perdue is vote to save Georgia from the Radical Left,” said Trump. The Georgia gubernatorial primary election will take place on May 26.
