Former Senator David Perdue has reportedly tested positive for Covid-19. Perdue, who is now running against Georgia Governor Brian Kemp tested positive during routine testing and is exhibiting no symptoms.
The Hill reports:
“Yesterday afternoon, during routine COVID-19 testing, David Perdue tested positive,” the campaign said. “He is vaccinated and boosted. Perdue doesn’t have a fever and isn’t experiencing symptoms at this time. He will be quarantining and following the updated guidance from the CDC, and he looks forward to being back out on the campaign trail as soon as possible.”
The eventual winner of the primary will likely face Democrat Stacey Abrams in the November general election. Abrams, who came within 55,000 votes of beating Kemp in the 2018 race for Georgia governor, is so far unchallenged for the Democratic nomination.
