David Perdue has officially announced he will not run for Senate again in 2022. The Georgia Republican recently filed paperwork with the Federal Electoral Commission to run against Warnock in the midterms. However, Perdue revealed that he’s ultimately decided he will not run, saying it’s a “personal decision, not a political one.”

Fox News reports:

“After much prayer and reflection, Bonnie and I have decided that we will not enter the race for the United States Senate in Georgia in 2022,” Perdue said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a personal decision, not a political one.”

“I am confident that whoever wins the Republican Primary next year will defeat the Democrat candidate in the General election for this seat, and I will do everything I can to make that happen,” Perdue continued. “As we saw in my race in November, Georgia is not a blue state. The more Georgians that vote, the better Republicans do.”

Perdue said he is “hopeful” that Georgia officials will “correct the inequities in our state laws and election rules so that, in the future, every legal voter will be treated equally and illegal votes will not be included.”

“I will do everything I can to be helpful in this effort,” he said, adding that “it has been the honor of my life to have represented the people of Georgia in the United States Senate.”

With Perdue confirming he won’t run next year, it leaves the field open for a new Republican voice to enter the ring. Some have speculated that Doug Collins, who ran again Kelly Loeffler during 2020’s special election, may run against Warnock.
