David Perdue refuses to debate Jon Ossoff and pulls a no show

Just in case you missed this over the weekend: Jon Ossoff faced off against an empty podium when Georgia Sen. David Perdue did not show up to the runoff debate. Ossoff called out Perdue for blocking coronavirus relief and abusing his power and privilege.

What a piece of work this Perdue is. Quietly, and I would argue at times illegally, working behind the scenes to enrich himself personally while also blocking and voting against legislation that would help the residents of the state. This has put millions of dollars in his pocket while everyday Georgians struggle and suffer. Perdue pulled a no show just like he’s pulled a no show for a state that is supposed to embody wisdom, justice, and moderation. Every day Georgians, Republican and Democrat, need to rise up and unite to end the reign of greed and corruption that seeps out of this man political pores.
