Democratic Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff announced Saturday that his campaign raised $1 million after Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., appeared to mock the name of democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris at a rally Friday.
"Senator Perdue simply mispronounced Senator Harris' name, and he didn't mean anything by it," John Burke, the communications director for Perdue's campaign, tweeted Friday night.
"He was making an argument against the radical socialist agenda that she and her endorsed candidate Jon Ossoff are pushing."
“Georgia needs a leader who will unite us to defeat COVID-19, not a pathetic schoolyard bully who engages in a stunning and juvenile display of bigotry at a Trump rally,” Ossoff said Saturday.
Meanwhile, Perdue raised $5.6 million over the same period, though he came into the race with a large war chest and currently has $8.2 million on hand, AJC reports.
