While Senator David Perdue Stands Up For Georgia Military Community, Jon Ossoff Leaves Them Behind
One of the key contrasts of Georgia’s 2020 Senate race between U.S. Senator David Perdue and privileged liberal Jon Ossoff, is their commitment to the women and men of our Armed Forces. While Senator Perdue has worked hard to secure pay raises and assistance for Georgia’s military community, Ossoff has shown that he would leave them behind. Here’s the contrast:
✅Senator Perdue fought for and succeeded in securing the biggest pay raise in a decade for members of the military.
❌Ossoff supported a controversial joint basing plan that could have cost 26,000 Georgia military-related jobs and weakened national security. He backed off of the plan only when it became politically inconvenient to him.
✅Senator Perdue passed legislation to improve military housing standards and expand employment options for spouses of servicemembers.
❌Ossoff worked for liberal Congressman Hank Johnson, who supported efforts by the Obama-Biden administration to limit defense spending and leave military communities with less funding.
✅Senator Perdue has served on the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees and has the support of some of Georgia’s most respected military leaders including General Arnold Punaro and General Walter Wojdakowski.
❌Ossoff lied about the nature of his national security clearance, with The Washington Post concluding he committed “resume puffery” while giving his claims “Four Pinocchios.”
✅Senator Perdue has worked with military leaders to ensure they have the tools they need to succeed at their mission and keep America safe from terrorism.
❌Ossoff‘s film company made huge profits producing films for Al-Jazeera, a news organization that has been referred to as a “mouthpiece” for terrorists.
✅Senator Perdue has supported President Trump’s efforts to confront threats to our national security like Iran and praised the President’s operation to eliminate terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.
❌Ossoff supports the Iran nuclear deal and has shown that he won’t stand up to protect America’s interests.
