Amico preps likely run for US Senate

Democrat Sarah Riggs Amico is lining up strategists and making a series of other behind-the-scenes moves as she prepares for a possible run for U.S. Senate against first-term Republican David Perdue.

The logistics executive, who ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor in 2018, is in talks with progressive pollster Cornell Belcher and Perkins Coie, a law firm with a large elections practice, to advise her potential campaign.
