On Monday, former Georgia Sen. David Perdue (R) has filed to run in 2022 against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D), Fox News reported.

While Warnock himself won in the January 5 runoff elections against Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R), Perdue lost reelection to Sen. Jon Ossoff (D).

Whereas the Perdue-Ossoff race was for a normal, six-year term, the Loeffler-Warnock race was a special election, meaning that the election’s winner, Warnock, will have to run for reelection early in 2022.

Both 2020 Georgia Senate races went into runoffs due to no candidates getting more than 50% of the vote, in accordance with the state’s election laws.

The former senator filed for reelection with the Federal Election Commission on Monday evening, according to Fox News, but did not say anything about it on Twitter as of midday Tuesday. On top of that, his former campaign website is inactive.

A source familiar with the matter reportedly told the news outlet that Perdue is leaning toward running.

Perdue only served one term as senator. His and Loeffler’s losses in January gave the Democrats the two seats they needed to control 50 out of the 100 seats in the Senate, along with the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris.

While President Joe Biden won the Peach State by a razor-thin margin, former President Donald Trump has claimed that the election was rigged and has gone after the state’s Republican governor and secretary of state.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”

“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.

Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
