Perdue too chicken to debate Ossoff again in Georgia runoff

first_img– Advertisement – Ossoff is in. “Looks like Sen. David Perdue is too much of a coward to debate me again,” he tweeted Sunday. “Perdue can’t defend his lies about COVID-19, self-dealing stock trades, his bigotry, or his votes to take away Georgians’ health care. Senator, come on out and try to defend your record. I’m ready to go.”Perdue’s campaign is trying to pretend that he’s above it all, and has it so much in hand that he doesn’t need to bother with something so trivial as making his case before Georgia’s voters again. “The runoff in Georgia is an extension of the November 3rd general election, where 52 percent of Georgians voted against Jon Ossoff and his radical agenda. Perdue had a commanding first place win, outpacing Ossoff by over 85,000 votes—in nearly every other state, Perdue would have been re-elected already,” campaign manager Ben Fry told CNN. What he neglects to mention is that 52% of Georgians also voted against Perdue. That’s why he’s in a runoff now.- Advertisement – By the way, on the invitation to the other candidates, “Warnock’s campaign has tentatively agreed, while Loeffler’s campaign has yet to respond.”last_img
