David Perdue is getting some heat for criticizing Karen Handel for not having a college degree
"There's a high-school graduate in this race, okay?" said Perdue, referring to his opponent, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel. "I'm sorry, these issues are so much broader, so complex. There's only one candidate in this race who's ever lived outside the United States. How can you bring value to a debate about the economy unless you have any understanding about the free-enterprise system and what it takes to compete in the global economy?"
It seems like a downright bizarre line of reasoning to go down in a state that's not exactly known for its high educational attainment. David Perdue is also apparently the former CEO of Dollar General
, which seems to make him an all-too fitting standard bearer for today's GOP.
“I have spent my career running businesses and creating jobs,” he says, touting the jobs he created at Dollar General. “I’m ready to use my private sector experience to help get big government out of the way and unleash the power of our American economy.”
