Jon Ossoff Slams GOP Sen. David Perdue For Canceling Last Debate

Jon Ossoff, the Democrat vying for a Senate seat in Georgia, said Thursday his GOP competitor, Sen. David Perdue, had canceled their final debate before next week’s election after the pair exchanged heated attacks a day before. “At last night’s debate, millions saw that Perdue had no answers when I called him out on his record of blatant corruption, widespread disease, and economic devastation,” Ossoff wrote on Twitter. BREAKING: Senator Perdue just cancelled our final debate.At last night’s debate, millions saw that Perdue had no answers when I called him out on his record of blatant corruption, widespread disease, and economic devastation. Shame on you, Senator.— Jon Ossoff (@ossoff) Oktober 29, 2020 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the debate, scheduled for next Sunday, was canceled after President Donald Trump planned to hold a campaign rally in the state that day. Perdue will join the president at that event instead, his campaign told the publication. Ossoff and Perdue are neck-and-neck in the polls. The pair lobbed barbs at each other during their second debate in Savannah on Wednesday. Ossoff called Perdue a “crook” and accused him of undermining Georgian’s health care, while the senator incorrectly attacked the Democrat as a radical who supported the Green New Deal and backed “socialized medicine” (both claims are false). HuffPost has reached out to Perdue’s campaign for comment. This is a developing story, check back for updates.
