David Alfred Perdue Jr. (born December 10, 1949) is an American businessman and politician. A member of the Republican Party, he has served as a United States Senator for Georgia since 2015.

After twelve years as a management consultant, Perdue subsequently served as CEO of Dollar General. He ran for U.S. Senate in 2014, defeating Democratic nominee Michelle Nunn.


Perdue is running for reelection in 2020 against Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff. As neither candidate obtained more than 50% of the vote, they face each other in a January 2021 runoff election. In an attempt to appease Trump after the November election, Perdue called for the resignation of Georgia’s top elections official (a fellow Republican) and claimed without evidence that there were unspecified “failures” in the election.[
