Republican David Perdue becomes 4th Georgia Senate candidate to endorse $2,000 stimulus checks

Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) on Tuesday became the fourth and final candidate in Georgia’s looming Senate runoffs to endorse increasing individual COVID-19 stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000, a measure supported by President Trump.> President @realdonaldtrump is right — I support this push for $2,000 in direct relief for the American people.> > — David Perdue (@Perduesenate) December 29, 2020Perdue’s fellow incumbent Republican, Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), tweeted her support for the boosted direct payments shortly before Perdue, while their respective Democratic challengers, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, were already on board. Ossoff called on Perdue to back the increase earlier Tuesday.> Democratic Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff says his opponent Sen. David Perdue needs to “get with the program” and support $2,000 stimulus checks for Americans.> > “$600 is a joke,” Ossoff says.> > — New Day (@NewDay) December 29, 2020While the candidates’ stances on the issue will likely have an effect on the tightly contested runoffs, Loeffler and Perdue are sitting senators who will vote on the measure if it’s brought to the floor. They join Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) in supporting bigger checks, which means it’s likely eight more GOP senators would have to join them to get the two-thirds majority required for passage.More stories from On Jan. 20, Biden to issue memo freezing Trump administration’s midnight regulations Trump is right about the Republican death wish Trump outruns congressional subpoenas for his tax records — at least until after he leaves office
