SMP Statement on Georgia Senate Primary Results

Washington, DC – Tonight, Senate Majority PAC President J.B. Poersch released the following statement on the results of the Georgia Senate primary and Jon Ossoff’s decisive victory:

“Congratulations to Jon Ossoff on his hard-fought victory in Georgia. Republicans have made it their mission to make it harder for Americans to vote, but what we saw yesterday in Georgia is a downright failure of leadership at every level and these rampant issues cannot go unchecked.”

“Senator David Perdue said it best: Georgia is in play. While in Washington, Sen. Perdue has become the quintessential D.C. politician. While Georgia was battling COVID-19, Sen. Perdue was caught trying to get rich off of a global health crisis. Sen. Perdue has a long way to go to distance himself from the drama of intra-party squabbles and insider trading allegations taking over his party. Jon Ossoff has made it his mission to stand up to the corruption in Washington, making him the perfect foil for Sen. David Perdue, who has been looking out for his own interests over the needs of working families.”
