David Perdue Wins GA Senate Seat

ATLANTA, Georgia–Georgia businessman Republican David Perdue won his senate race against Democrat Michelle Nunn on Tuesday night and also broke 50 percent, so the GOP’er will not be forced to compete in a January runoff. Perdue took 55 percent of the vote while Nunn picked up 43 percent.

Along with Perdue is Georgia Republican Governor Nathan Deal who also won his re-election against Democrat Jason Carter sans a runoff. According to the Secretary of State’s website, Georgia has 5,191,182 registered voters. Forty-three percent turned out to vote and cast 2,248,945 ballots.

“We put great work together we had a great team and we got the vote out. And even with being outspent by a very tough Democratic machine, this state is not blue. This state is not purple. It’s still a red state,” said Perdue senior campaign advisor Martha Zoller to Breitbart News.

“I said for the last 10 days it was not going to go into a runoff,” said retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) to reporters on Tuesday night.
