FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Twelve days from Georgia's Senate election, Republican David Perdue has launched a statewide bus tour to remind conservatives that he wants to help his party continue fighting President Barack Obama.
Greeting friendly crowds Thursday morning in Fayetteville and Newnan, Perdue said his matchup against Democrat Michelle Nunn is about denying Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid another vote. The GOP needs six more seats to control the chamber.
Perdue said he wants to reach undecided voters who remain, but acknowledged his focus is on getting his supporters to the polls. His tour will last 10 days and include more than 60 stops.
Several popular conservatives will join him along the way, including Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, now a Fox News personality.
