Georgia U.S. Senate runoff: Jon Ossoff's final forum before January election (LIVE) | USA TODAY



Jon Ossoff, the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate challenging incumbent Republican David Perdue, takes part in a “debate” at the Atlanta Press Club. David Perdue declined an invitation to participate.

Both U.S. Senate seats in Georgia have entered a runoff, with no candidate receiving the necessary majority to win a statewide election in November. Georgia is one of the only states to require a majority (often referred to as “50+1” for fifty percent plus one vote) in order to successfully be elected. Therefore, Jon Ossoff and David Perdue will take part in a runoff for the seat currently held by Perdue, and Kelly Loeffler and Raphael Warnock will take part in a special election runoff for the seat currently occupied by Loeffler, who was appointed by Governor Brian Kemp as the replacement for Johnny Isaakson, who retired in December 2019 due to health concerns.

  1. A second thought Purdue thought the debate would be canceled if he reused to show up Well that wasn’t the best strategy
    Think he just gave his seat away

  2. Watching from the UK….very impressive ….future President?

  3. I’m pretty sure Ossoff won this one…

  4. “The arrogance of Perdue to not show up he thinks he’s entitled to the Senate seat “ it wasn’t arrogance it was insanely stupid move

  5. “So arrogant that he’s not here today”…camera pans to empty podium 💀

  6. I'm not a resident of Georgia but I would definitely vote Jon Ossoff in a heartbeat ❤

  7. Georgians can see right threw senator David Perdue …. literally 😂

  8. Well is there any question as to who will stand for the people, a corrupt coward who can't even be bothered to show up, or a guy who will truly have all Georgians back, well now it's all Georgians chance to show what there made of, put the final nail in trumps cabal, vote blue, show your worthy, to the whole of America, your vote will show the world what America truly is, remember corny as it sounds Truth, justice the American way is in your hands,

  9. Do you have anything to hide Purdue, Like the other spineless coward Donnie with his personal tax return?

  10. Watch out Americans ! Jon Ossoff will become the President of America in the future. He is smart, intelligent, well-spoken young man. Did I mention he's good-looking too? He is also an excellent debater. There's still hope for America.

  11. This guy is in top notch. Very intelligent guy. He has already won believe me

  12. I hope Jon Ossoff runs for President in 2024 because I want him to lead our country. He speaks from the heart, not from some speech written by someone else or a list of topics and notes. America, LOOK at this man. He is talking off the top of his head. He is intellegent and honest. And we can't let him get away!

  13. If David Purdue cared about the people of Georgia he'd debate

  14. Such an eloquent speaker…👏🏻

  15. ossoff talks the same stories about COVID and makes everything political. people in this comment section who are sold by his generalization of words are naive and cannot separate their emotions from the BS this guy is talking about. no value in debating him. if Ossoff is voted in then be ready to pay higher tax rates, open borders, and prioritize the interests of BLM and deadbeat bums who dont want to work.

  16. If Ossoff gets elected he will contribute to the decisions about defunding the police. Crime and homicide rates will go up as it recently did in LA. He will promote open borders. But what puzzles me is how no one is asking the question about the millionaires and billionaires outside of Georgia who have pumped millions of dollars into Ossoffs campaign.

  18. Why would you not show up to answer questions? Unless you have something hide? Republicans if Perdue cared? He would show up. Watching from Australia and he has my vote. Eloquent, concise and intelligent. The future of America. Georgia, the world is counting on you. Vote Ossoff.

  19. That's all the Republicans do is talk shit and hide behind bricks why show up when you know you are corrupt

  20. A future Jewish President nomination and my husband is Palestinian! Georgia would be lucky to such a Senator!!

  21. Hopefully Ossoff runs for the presidency in the future.

  22. Maybe for the next debate they can put a cut out of Purdue at the podium wearing a t-shirt that reads, 'I really don't care, do U?' 😂

  23. this guy deserves the senate seat, Perdue should leave

  24. We fellow Georgians won't stand for communism, higher taxes and defunding of our brave police officers. God bless David and Kelly.

  25. Hahahah Ossoff is good! Period!

  26. I don’t even live in Georgia but this guy is sharp 💯

  27. Another one bites the dust.

  28. Fact is Purdue had already won, except for the Democratic's Jim Crow laws of the 60's! Ossoff, simply spewed democratic talking points as they have done for the last 60 years, but changing nothing when it power!

  29. Perdue sir you are a bad example for the people. Of Georgia and you are a coward. You have know respect for Georgians . We don’t need you Perdue,

  30. And people will vote for that coward hiding in his mansion as this amazing guy speaks so eloquently?
    Ossof for Senate 👍

  31. I'm in florida and he has my vote

  32. This coward can't even show up to defend himself because he doesn't have any documentation to prove he's been cleared as he claims, he knows he's denied $1,200 checks from the get-go, he didn't even want the first round while he uses his seat to enrich himself, and he has the gall to ask for the votes of the people of Georgia and can't even show up to defend his views and himself!?!, make us proud Georgia, vote blue, vote this clown out and help end McConnell's stranglehold and denial of any kind of help for common hard working Americans I just want to be able to make it through the next month. It's all ALL up to you!!

  33. Jesus Christ is Lord & Savior

  34. Georgia vote wisely socialism destroy country

  35. we seriously need more people like Ossoff representing the next generation inheriting this mess, and flush out these corrupt boomers in Washington that destroyed America.

  36. That picture of GoofOff and pre-November election tactics, sure looks like an image straight from WWII Germany. I wonder what his boots look like!? 👎🤣
