Public Service Commissioner Chuck Eaton is throwing his support behind David Perdue as the clock rapidly clicks towards the July 22nd Senate runoff.

In a Friday op-ed, supplemented with an email appeal to supporters, the District 3 commissioner stated the businessman’s “experience as a successful CEO has given him unique insight into the requirements for a strong economic engine, which can generate real job growth and start to pull us out of the massive federal debt.”

Eaton was first elected to the PSC in 2006, toppling an incumbent Democrat in a year that saw Peach State Republicans make statewide advances. He defeated both primary and Democratic opposition en route to being re-elected in 2012.
