This year is different. We only need 6 seats to remove pro-abortion Harry Reid from control of the Senate.
In Georgia, David Perdue (R) and Michelle Nunn (D) are nearly tied in the polls.
After researching the two candidates in light of Catholic teaching, it is clear to us at CatholicVote.org that David Perdue is the right candidate for the people of Georgia.
Since educating faithful Catholics and encouraging them to vote are two of our main priorities, we have created these simple, side-by-side candidate comparison flyers for your reference.
As Catholics, abortion, marriage, and religious liberty are at the top of our list. But we have included some other issues that people of faith should also consider when deciding on a candidate.

The HHS mandate is a policy where the federal government forces employers to pay for abortion pills and other morally objectionable services. The United States Senate on March 1, 2012, rejected the Blunt Amendment which would have restored the religious liberty rights of all Americans who objected to being forced to pay for abortion pills. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of religious liberty in the Hobby Lobby case in June 2014.
