ATLANTA, GA – Tonight, following the Senate debate hosted by GPB at the Atlanta Press Club, Perdue spokeswoman Megan Whittemore released the following statement:
“Tonight’s debate clearly demonstrated why David Perdue will be elected Georgia’s next Senator on November 4th. David Perdue showed how he will fight for the people of Georgia, while Michelle Nunn confirmed that she will do whatever it takes to be Barack Obama’s Senator in Washington.
“From growing the economy and creating jobs, repealing and replacing the disaster that is Obamacare, and putting a stop to Obama’s harmful regulatory agenda, David showed how he will help Georgia families.
“Michelle Nunn, on the other hand, showed Georgia voters why Barack Obama was so excited to endorse her this past week. It’s clear the President needs Nunn to complete his liberal agenda in Washington. If elected, she would ensure that Harry Reid remains Senate Majority Leader and she would be a rubber stamp for Obamacare, an open border, and Obama’s failed economic policies.
“Nunn’s debate tactics mimic her overall campaign of deception. Instead of debating the issues, she spent her time pointing fingers and playing politics to try and tear down David with false personal attacks, and deceive voters about what she really stands for on the issues that matter most to middle-class Georgians.
“Nunn’s false attacks and avoidance of the issues is exactly the type of politics as usual that Georgians are tired of in Washington. Georgians want a Senator who is serious about tackling tough problems and producing real results. David’s common sense leadership, business acumen, coupled with his positive vision for the future is exactly what Georgians want in order to lead Washington in a new direction.”
