ABA and Georgia Bankers Association Release New Ad Thanking Senator David Perdue for COVID-19 Relief Efforts

WASHINGTON —

The American Bankers Association joined the Georgia Bankers Association today in releasing a new television ad thanking Senator David Perdue for helping Georgia families and small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ad buy is part of a voter education campaign that will begin airing in Georgia as soon as today.

“Senator Perdue’s strong support for the Paycheck Protection Program allowed small businesses in Georgia and around the country to survive the economic dislocation caused by COVID-19,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “We support his efforts in Congress to bolster the economy and keep people working, and we appreciate his keen understanding of the important role that banks continue to play in the recovery.”

“We are proud to join ABA in highlighting David Perdue’s efforts to deliver the largest relief package in American history, helping to save so many of Georgia’s small businesses and farmers,” added Joe Brannen, president and CEO of the GBA. “Senator Perdue is a leader, and his support for the CARES Act helped protect Georgia families and preserve 1.5 million Georgia jobs.”

ABA’s bipartisan voter education efforts in 2020, alongside our state association partners, are the largest in the association’s history. Click here to see the ads.
