Senator David Perdue Comments On Armed Services Chairmanship

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) being named chairman:

“The Armed Services Committee has had a tough year. We will all miss John McCain’s leadership and guidance. When news broke about John, Jim immediately rose to the challenge and proved to all of us that he can successfully lead our committee. Not only is Jim committed to our committee, but he is also committed to working with President Trump to modernize our military capabilities and rebuild our armed forces after the previous administration’s disinvestment. Jim has the experience we need in a Chairman and will do a great job in leading our committee.”


Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
