Arizona Republican is ‘nuts’ and a ‘permanent resident of Crazytown’: GOP governor’s chief of staff

‘David Perdue is a crook’: GOP senator ripped as ‘a cartoon version of a corrupt oligarch’
Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) was ripped on MSNBC as a crook by his Democratic challenger on Friday.
Joy Reid, host of "The ReidOut" on MSNBC, interviewed Democrat Jon Ossoff, who had harsh words for his Republican opponent.

This is a guy who lives on a private island, hasn't held a single town hall meeting in six years, openly sells meetings to lobbyists for corporate PAC checks, votes to throw people off their healthcare, opposed even the first round of $1,200 stimulus checks and he treats his Senate office like it is his E-trade account."

President Donald Trump is trashing Georgia's GOP governor even worse in private than on Twitter, according to a new report by CNN.
"In the politics lead today, Georgia Republicans say that they are concerned about President Trump's planned rally tomorrow in Georgia," CNN's Jake Tapper reported. "They worry that it could actually discourage Republican voter turnout.
