In Georgia, the Sen. David Perdue vs. Jon Ossoff race is one of two hot runoffs that will impact the future of the U.S. Senate.

As most Americans know at this point, Ossoff is backed by radical liberal extremists who would love nothing more than to oust Perdue from Congress. However, as Perdue and Ossoff face off, the former has repeatedly held Ossoff’s feet to the fire for nonstop lies.

The GOP senator is furthermore holding Ossoff accountable for a “radical socialist agenda” and noting the Democrat’s tendency to change his views, depending on where he is. In some places, Ossoff claims to oppose defunding the police; then, in other circles, the Georgia Democrat professes that funding for law enforcement officers ought to be “on the table.”

One of Ossoff’s latest attacks against Perdue asserts that the latter opposed COVID-19 relief for Georgians; although, like much that comes from Ossoff, this attack is simply not true, per Townhall.

The Truth About Who Opposed COVID-19 Relief for Georgians

Ossoff’s claims that Perdue voted against coronavirus relief is simply not true.

As a matter of fact, it is Ossoff himself who opposed the Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act along with the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Despite Ossoff’s own father benefiting from PPP, the Georgia Democrat claimed that both the CARES Act and PPP only benefited the rich.

This is Ossoff’s track record and Perdue reminded him of it this week. Throughout Ossoff’s campaign, he’s repeatedly gone after Perdue with allegations that are simply not accurate. As a result of Ossoff’s behavior, Perdue stated weeks ago that he wouldn’t debate Ossoff again.

Upon learning this, Ossoff melted down in an online temper tantrum, referring to Perdue as a “coward” and a “crook.” The Georgia Democrat has also put out several tweets, nearly begging his Republican rival to indulge him in more debates. Perdue, however, isn’t having it.

Who’s Really Fighting for Georgia?

Amid inaccurate attacks from Ossoff, Perdue and other Republicans have hounded Ossoff for putting his political ambitions above people. Ossoff, on the other hand, has yet to explain why he opposed PPP and the CARES Act. Georgians who are waiting for an honest answer should not hold their breath.

Later this evening, President Trump will be in Georgia to fight for the re-election of Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
