A day after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell R-KY hinted that he could force another government shutdown if Republicans win back the Senate in November, a senate hopeful suggested he would be on board with another shutdown, lauding the party’s decision to let the government close this past October.Speaking at a candidates’ forum on Thursday, David Perdue responded to a moderator’s question about his backing for the 16-day shutdown led by Sen. Ted Cruz R-TX, saying “that speaks for itself.” “I think it was the situation that we had in Washington was over Obamacare,” he added. “What I was saying was that we cannot default on our interest payments.”
