ATLANTA, GA – After a violent weekend in Atlanta, David Perdue, candidate for Governor, spoke to media about the unacceptable crime happening across the state on Brian Kemp’s watch. Yesterday, a shooting took place in Buckhead just blocks away from the Governor’s bill signing, but Kemp is still keeping his “powder dry.”

Stop The Madness: “It’s time to make this stuff stop. It’s unacceptable. It’s embarrassing. We can put a stop to this.”
Do-Nothing Politicians: “Our Governor said when asked about crime in Atlanta, particularly the vote in Buckhead, ‘I’m going to keep my powder dry.’ That’s what politicians say when they’re going to do nothing.”
Across Georgia: “It’s not just here in Atlanta. Macon, where I was born, is short 200 police officers right now. They have the highest murder rate in their history. This is unacceptable.”
Asleep At The Wheel: “The question I have for everybody… do you feel safe today? If the answer is no, then it’s time for a change in Governor. [Kemp’s] been asleep at the wheel keeping his ‘powder dry’ for the last four years, and it’s time to do something about that.”
Crush Crime: “We want to put more police on the streets, we want to get this thing under control, and work with the mayors around this state and make sure we get this nonsense to stop.”
Trump-endorsed David Perdue launched his campaign for Governor of Georgia on Dec. 6th, 2021. As an outsider, Perdue’s bold, conservative vision includes fighting for election integrity, eliminating the state income tax, empowering parents to make decisions in their children’s education, and making our cities and state safe again. Perdue is taking on incumbent Brian Kemp as the only candidate who can unite Georgia’s fractured Republican Party and defeat Stacey Abrams in November.
Perdue grew up in Middle Georgia, the son of two public school teachers, and paid his way through Georgia Tech by working warehouse and construction jobs. He has over 40 years of business experience, leading the Reebok athletic brand and Dollar General stores, where he created thousands of jobs for hard-working Americans.
