ATLANTA – In a closing-stretch push for all-out victory, Republican Senate candidate David Perdue brought in the big guns over the weekend. Party powerhouses Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul rallied small-town crowds to get behind the former CEO of Reebok and Dollar General and send him to Washington.
“I can think of only a few businessmen that we have,” Paul told the crowd at a town square rally in McDonough, just south of Atlanta. “And I think it would be great to have someone with some common sense – with some business sense to create jobs.”
