Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn launched a TV ad Friday asking whether women can trust David Perdue, Nunn’s GOP opponent for the state’s open Senate seat.  

The ad, shared first with CQ Roll Call, is part of a continued effort to highlight Perdue’s corporate past. It states Dollar General was sued by female employees for discrimination while he was serving as CEO and that the company paid a multi-million-dollar settlement.  

“If David Perdue didn’t do right by women at his company, why would he do right for Georgia?” the ad’s announcer says. www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTHlO7HSkLU  

Moderate, Republican-leaning women are crucial to Nunn’s winning coalition. She faces an uphill climb in a state President Barack Obama lost twice and in a midterm cycle when Democrats struggle to get their base to the polls.  

The race is rated Republican Favored by the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
