Instead she claimed that Donald Trump has the right to use “every legal recourse available” to challenge the election results.
Jon Ossoff and Senator David Perdue had their second debate in Savannah, Georgia. WTOC-TV in Savannah sponsored and moderated the event. The debate became heated at times, with Ossoff accusing Senator Perdue of being a "crook" and lamented that “perhaps Sen. Perdue would have been able to respond properly to the Covid-19 pandemic if you hadn’t been fending off multiple federal investigations for insider trading.” Perdue responded by criticizing Ossoff for selling a documentary film he produced to a firm with ties to China.
Jon Ossoff and Senator David Perdue face off in their first debate where they discussed multiple crises facing Georgia and the country.
