Final evening, Perdue engaged in a debate with Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff. It will be an understatement to say that the Liberal received the talk. Ossoff slammed the Republican saying:
“Maybe Senator Perdue would have been capable of reply correctly to the COVID-19 pandemic when you hadn’t been heading off a number of federal investigations for insider buying and selling. It’s not simply that you just’re a criminal, senator, it’s that you just’re attacking the well being of the individuals that you just characterize.”
It’s no shock that Perdue doesn’t wish to come nose to nose in opposition to the fierce debater once more. Ossoff tweeted on Thursday, “BREAKING: Senator Perdue simply cancelled our ultimate debate. Eventually evening’s debate, thousands and thousands noticed that Perdue had no solutions after I referred to as him out on his report of blatant corruption, widespread illness, and financial devastation. Disgrace on you, Senator.”
