Some big news today out of Georgia:
Calling him a “warrior against corruption,” Stacey Abrams formally endorsed Jon Ossoff’s bid for U.S. Senate two weeks after he won the party’s primary for the right to challenge Republican David Perdue.
In a joint appearance Tuesday with Ossoff on MSNBC, Abrams said the investigative journalist will make partner with the Rev. Raphael Warnock, who she earlier endorsed in Georgia’s other U.S. Senate contest, to fight corruption in Washington.
“Those are the kinds of people that we need to send to the Senate, and that’s why I’m so excited that Georgia is a battleground this year,” said Abrams, who launched the Fair Fight voting rights group after losing the 2018 race for governor.
Ossoff avoided a runoff in this month’s primary vote, capturing roughly 52% of the vote in a seven-candidate field to challenge Perdue, a first-term Republican and former Fortune 500 chief executive.
Ossoff said Georgia voters have experienced an “awakening” with the confluence of the pandemic, the problem-plagued primary and protests over racial justice and police brutality.
