Senate and House Democrats are focused on defeating President Donald Trump and winning more seats in both chambers of the U.S. Congress in the 2020 presidential election cycle.
Yeah, Republicans are also trying to make gains in the Senate and regain control of the House the lost in 2018, and they have Trump to help them do so.
President Trump will dictate how well or how bad the Republicans do nationwide. This is a given.
Several key Senate races in Arizona, Colorado, and Kentucky appear to be competitive for Democrats, but Georgia’s Senate seat currently held by Sen. David Perdue (R) could be a lock for Republicans.
Perdue, who is in his first term and has sided with President Trump 95 percent of the time, is enjoying an approval rating just above 50 percent, a key indicator that Perdue could be in very good shape going into the throws of the campaign cycle.
Here is a diagram from a Morning Consult poll. The image shows consistent support for Perdue has been.
Democrats have yet to field a viable or big-name alternative to Perdue.
Former gubernatorial candidate Stacy Adams said she won’t run, but former congressional candidate Jon Ossof is still considering the possibility.
Taking Ossof and Adams out of the mix, the field of Democratic candidates is very small.
Former Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson and Clarkson Mayor Ted Terry are in.
Sarah Riggs Amico, the CEO of Jack Cooper Holdings Corp in Cobb County, is still mulling over the idea of running against Perdue.
Perdue is likable and should do well, but as is the case in every race, election night will most-likely boil down to how well Trump does overall.
