Sen. Perdue to quarantine just days before Georgia runoff
Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) tweeted on Thursday that he will quarantine after coming in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
Why it matters: Perdue, who says he tested negative for the coronavirus on Thursday, faces a runoff election next week against Democrat Jon Ossoff. Perdue did not specify how long he will stay in quarantine.
The big picture: GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler (Ga.) is also in a runoff against Democrat Rev. Raphael Warnock.
- The Jan. 5 runoffs in Georgia will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate.
