WATCH: New Attack Ad on Perdue Says He Built Career on Outsourcing Jobs

A new ad released Tuesday says Georgia gubernatorial candidate David Perdue built his career by sending jobs elsewhere.

The Georgians First Leadership Committee published the advertisement titled ‘America First‘ early Tuesday morning.

Along with the video Senior Advisor Cody Hall said, “David Perdue built his career outsourcing American jobs to Asia, leaving families in financial ruin and making a fortune on his way out the door. That isn’t ‘America First’ – that’s David Perdue putting himself and China first.”

The Georgians First Leadership Committee is a Kemp-driven leadership fund established earlier this year. It stems from a new law signed into effect in 2021 which allows some elected officials to set up funds that can collect unlimited contributions from donors. It’s different from a traditional campaign fund for an individual in that the limits do not exist and the leadership funds are able to take contributions during the legislative session. Additionally, while nonprofits can’t work alongside an individual candidate’s campaign, a leadership committee may.

Pundits have already projected the 2022 gubernatorial election to be the most expensive in state history. Stacey Abrams’ organization, Fair Fight, has raised more than $100 million since the last election.

To date, there are six Republicans running for Governor, including:

One Libertarian, Shane Hazel, and Democrat Stacey Abrams are also running.
