Former Georgia Senator David Perdue appears to be exploring a 2022 run after his recent defeat in the January 5 Georgia Senate runoff election, according to paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday. Perdue , a Republican, lost his seat in the Senate to his Democratic While Ossoff won a full term in the Senate by unseating Perdue , Warnock won a special runoff election against incumbent Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler, whose term was set to expire in 2022 .

Republican Sen. David Perdue of Georgia will quarantine after coming into close contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19, his campaign announced Thursday, with just days to go before the state's runoff race for his seat. On Thursday, the Warnock campaign announced that former first lady Michelle Obama had recorded a robocall for the Democratic candidate, which comes several weeks after former President Barack Obama appeared in three digital campaign ads. CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story listed the incorrect date for the Georgia runoff.

Perdue, a Republican, lost his seat in the Senate to his Democratic challenger, Jon Ossoff. If Perdue does run in 2022, he would be challenging Raphael Warnock, the other Democrat who unseated one of Georgia's incumbent Republicans during the runoff election on January 5.

Trump’s Lawyers Lost the Day

  Trump’s Lawyers Lost the Day The slovenliness of Trump’s legal team threatened to deprive senators of their face-saving excuse.That’s what Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell had to say on January 21. McConnell did not rise to the leadership of the Senate Republicans by speaking idly. If he feels that Donald Trump incited a riot with the specific purpose of thwarting the 2020 election, so do many other Republican senators as well.

Senate Majority PAC, the top Democratic Super PAC involved in Senate races, will spend .2 million on ads in September aimed at defeating Republican Sen. David Perdue of Georgia, as his race against Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff has turned into one of the most competitive in the country.

David Perdue is declining to participate in debates against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff ahead of their Jan. 5 runoff in Georgia. Ossoff's campaign said Monday that Ossoff has accepted six invitations from various media organizations for debates between now and Jan. A win by either Perdue or Loeffler would maintain the Senate majority for Republicans. Dual Democratic victories would yield a 50-50 split in the Senate, with Kamala Harris wielding the tie-breaking vote as vice president. A spokeswoman for the Atlanta Press Club said Monday that Warnock has confirmed his participation

Ossoff won a full term in the Senate by unseating Perdue, but Warnock won a special runoff election against incumbent Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler, whose term was set to expire in 2022. Their wins delivered Democrats a slim majority in the Senate, with 50 seats secured for the party and Vice President Kamala Harris able to cast tie-breaking votes.

According to the paperwork Perdue filed on Monday, his principal campaign committee for the 2022 election is named "Perdue for Senate." Perdue has not officially announced a run for Warnock's seat, but his Monday filing leaves that possibility on the table.

Perdue was first elected to represent Georgia in the Senate in 2014 and ran against Ossoff in his first bid for re-election last fall. Georgia state law dictates that a candidate must win at least 50 percent of the votes cast in an election in order to win. When neither Perdue nor Ossoff reached that goal, both candidates shifted their focus to the January 5 runoff election, which Ossoff won by about 1.2 percent.

Seven GOP Senators Vote to Convict Trump During Second Impeachment Trial

  Seven GOP Senators Vote to Convict Trump During Second Impeachment Trial Senators Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, Patrick Toomey, Bill Cassidy and Richard Burr joined all of their Democratic colleagues to vote for a conviction on Saturday.Senators Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, Patrick Toomey, Bill Cassidy and Richard Burr joined all of their Democratic colleagues to vote for a conviction.

Warnock vs. Loeffler. Ossoff vs. Perdue . Current estimate. – – – Warnock vs. Loeffler, margin estimates over time. Once a state has counted all its votes, our estimated margin and the reported margin will match. It’s worth remembering that Warnock will have to run for re -election in two years.

Lindsey Graham said Minority Leader Mitch McConnell 's speech against former President Donald Trump could be used against GOP candidates in 2022 . Graham’s accusation comes after the Senate shifted from Republican to Democratic control after the 2020 election. The decisive races came in two Georgia runoffs, which resulted in Democratic Sens. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock knocking off incumbent Republicans. In a chamber now divided with 50 members caucusing with each party, Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris casts tie-breaking votes.

Warnock and Loeffler also moved on to the January 5 runoff following their electoral battle in November. Warnock ultimately defeated Loeffler by about 2 percent.

Before the Democrats' wins in Georgia last month, Republicans held a majority in the Senate for years, with Senate Majority Leader McConnell serving as the chamber's majority leader. The wins by Ossoff and Warnock paired with President Joe Biden's defeat of former President Donald Trump last fall shifted the balance of power in the Senate to the Democrats for the first time since 2015, with New York Senator Chuck Schumer now serving as majority leader.

McConnell recently told Politico that he's focused on helping his party regain control in the Senate during the next election cycle. A Perdue candidacy in Georgia—a state that typically leans Republican—could help McConnell in his pursuit of a Republican majority.

It’ll Do

  It’ll Do Impeachment did not prevail, but Trump still lost.In one single day in 2021, that many senators showed courage worth enduring historical honor: Seven were Republicans: Richard Burr, William Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey. The other was Joe Manchin, a Democrat from a state where nearly 69 percent of people voted for President Donald Trump in 2020.

David Perdue is drawing outrage after appearing to mock Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris' name while warming up the crowd ahead of a rally for President Donald Trump speech on Friday night. Perdue , who has been a Senate colleague with Harris for over three years, was railing about Senate Democrats at the president's Macon, Georgia, rally before flubbing Harris' name and then going on to mock her. "The most insidious thing that Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden are trying to perpetuate, and Bernie [Sanders] and Elizabeth [Warren] and Kamala -- Kah-ma-la, or Kah-mah-la

Physical distancing measures may need to be in place intermittently until 2022 , scientists have warned in an analysis that suggests there could be resurgences of Covid-19 for years to come. The paper, published in the journal Science, concludes that a one-time lockdown will not be sufficient to bring the pandemic under control and that secondary peaks could be larger than the current one without continued restrictions. Unless there is some enormously larger amount of herd immunity than we’ re aware of … the majority of the population is still susceptible.

"My goal is, in every way possible, to have nominees representing the Republican Party who can win in November," he said. "Some of them may be people the former president likes. Some of them may not be. The only thing I care about is electability."

Newsweek reached out to Warnock's office for comment and will update this article with any response.
