U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) fought tooth and nail in Washington D.C. to secure relief funding for Georgia farmers following Hurricane Michael. That process, marred by individuals playing politics on both sides of the aisle, resulted in a drawn out saga that infuriated Perdue and other Georgia legislators.

Eventually, however, cooler heads prevailed and a disaster relief package was signed into law.  Perdue sat down with our friends at Georgia CEO this week to discuss what went into securing that funding, and what needs to be done to make sure petty politics don’t get in the way of helping Americans in need of help.
