Senate debate on WSB canceled after Perdue pulls out of Sunday showdown

Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitutio




U.S. Sen. David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff square off in an Oct. 28, 2020 debate in Savannah.

17 minutes ago

The third and final televised debate in the race between U.S. Sen. David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff was canceled on Thursday after the Republican incumbent pulled out to join President Donald Trump in a planned rally in northwest Georgia.

The debate was scheduled weeks ago to air on Channel 2 Action News on Sunday, but Perdue backed out shortly after word spread that Trump would hold a rally for his re-election campaign in Rome the same day.

Locked in a statistical tie in the polls, Ossoff accused the Republican of ducking another face-to-face meeting after “millions saw that Perdue had no answers when I called him out on his record of blatant corruption, widespread disease and economic devastation” at a Wednesday debate. “Shame on you,” he added.

Perdue spokesman John Burke said “as lovely as another debate listening to Jon Ossoff lie to the people of Georgia sounds,” the Republican will instead join Trump at the rally, which has not yet been formally announced by the president’s campaign but was expected to take place Sunday evening in Rome.

It's not his fault Perdue chickened out of his obligation.

5. If he just sent a cardboard cut out would anyone know?

That clip of Ossoff ripping into him was great. Perdue just stood there like an empty suit.

2. Trump + Purdue...Stockholm syndrome victim will not be a good look for Purdue

I hope they reserve the air time for Ossoff to do a town hall. (i can't access the AJC to find out whether that is in the cards.)
