The Perdue campaign and the fundraiser coordinator, Alice Perry of The Elevated Group, did not return several requests for comment.

State Republicans are hopeful he focuses his message on getting the two re-elected, not on last month's election. In an open letter shared with NBC News Wednesday, 18 former Georgia Republican leaders called for the party to come together around that goal. "It's Democrats doing it as if they are right wing nuts," one Georgia Republican strategist told NBC News. "And so now this Senate election to me, is pretty important."

REUTERS/Dustin Chambers(Reuters) - Republican Senator David Perdue's stock trades in financial firm Cardlytics Inc earlier in 2020 prompted a Justice Department inquiry that has since been shut without charges, the New York Times reported here on Wednesday. The investigators were undertaking a broad review of the senator’s trading around the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic for possible evidence of insider trading, the NYT said, citing four people with knowledge of the case. According to the NYT report, Perdue had bought back a substantial portion of the shares that he sold after the company’s stock price bottomed out in March at $29. “The New York Times report of the exonerating evidence reconfirms that the baseless accusations leveled against Senator Perdue were nothing more than lies to push a categorically false narrative for political gain,” said John Burke, communications director of the senator’s campaign.

It's not impossible for Trump to win, but it will be difficult: Strategas Research's CliftonWhether it's true or not, Republicans are saying votes are being taken away from them, says Dan Clifton, head of policy research at Strategas Research Partners. He joins 'The Exchange' to provide analysis on the current election tallies and the impact on markets. Even if the Republicans don't end up with control of the Senate, they really did much better than anyone anticipated, says Clifton. The central question here is Sen. David Perdue's race in Georgia, Clifton says. If he's below 50 percent, there'll be a runoff election in early January.
