DSCC Statement on Expected Perdue-Ossoff Runoff in Georgia

Scott Fairchild, Executive Director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement on Jon Ossoff’s strong and historic performance heading into the runoff election for the Georgia Senate race:

“Georgia is clearly now a purple battleground state, and Senator Perdue is a weak, scandal-plagued incumbent who can’t defend his record of outsourcing and corruption. We’re ready to help Jon flip this Senate seat.”

Democrats have put Georgia firmly in play. Ossoff has shattered state fundraising records and outraised Senator David Perdue since becoming the Democratic nominee. Mitch McConnell’s Super PAC spent more money attacking Ossoff than nearly any other Democratic Senate challenger this year, a sign of how nervous Washington Republicans were and remain about losing this seat. 

Senator Perdue will now face even more scrutiny for his toxic record: bragging about outsourcing jobs, endorsing the dangerous federal lawsuit that would “erase” health care protections for pre-existing conditions, skipping a hearing on military families to attend an event with big donors, pushing a tax scam for the ultra-wealthy through Congress expected to benefit millionaires like himself, downplaying the risks of COVID-19, prioritizing his personal stock portfolio over preparing the public during a deadly pandemic, and being fined $30,000 over federal election law violations.
