The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) released a statement today on another Democrat joining the growing, “leftward drift[ing]” Senate primary field in Georgia:
“The path to a socialist agenda will not run through Georgia, but the growing and contentious Democratic senate primary field didn’t get the memo,” said NRSC spokesperson Nathan Brand. “Failed business executive and former Stacey Abrams’ sidekick Sarah Riggs Amico joins a primary contest that has embraced an extreme and out-of-touch agenda that stands in sharp contrast to David Perdue’s positive record of delivering results for all of Georgia.”
Amico’s announcement follows reports that her company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Her company’s struggles come on the heels of multiple discrimination lawsuits and safety violations filed against the firm.
Teresa Tomlinson’s staff has already started attacking Amico, as Democrats in Georgia prepare for one of the nastiest primaries in the country. Despite the candidacies of Amico, Tomlinson, and Terry, the field may still expand further as failed congressional candidate Jon Ossoff is eyeing another run, and long-time Connecticut resident Matt Lieberman might enter the race.
The Democratic primary has been marked by its leftward lurch, as each candidate tries to embrace failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’ extreme agenda. Despite the “relentless” wooing of Chuck Schumer and national Democrats, Abrams passed on running for Senate. Abrams is now operating special-interest-funded organizations in an effort to prop up left-wing Democrats in Georgia.
