New polling and developing scandals show “growing trouble for Perdue” as Georgia becomes “a state to watch at nearly every level”
ATLANTA — Today, following disastrous GOP internal polling and new rankings from the National Journal showing Georgia’s Senate races among those “most likely to flip,” the Cook Political Report’s Jessica Taylor further confirmed that “the state of Georgia is in play” in a new analysis that moved Georgia’s regular Senate election closer to the Democrats.
Taylor notes that both parties “believe this is a single-digit race” — a view backed up by recent polling and Perdue himself who already privately admitted to conservative activists that his seat was “in play” this election. Now, as his “stock trades have come under scrutiny” from his coronavirus trading and polling paints “a more competitive picture” in the state, Perdue is facing “growing trouble” in 2020.
Coming on the heels of a week full of bad news for Perdue and his fellow Georgia Republicans, this new rating only further cements Perdue’s race as among the “most competitive” in the country and once again confirms, “Georgia is a state to watch at nearly every level in 2020.”
