Jay Wallace, the owner of Adventure Outdoors, bragged about a Halloween rally for Loeffler in the parking lot of his Smyrna store “The Senator of the Second Amendment.” Wallace told the Rome News-Tribune, “She’s the real deal. Not only for the second amendment do I know that she has been a customer for a while. She buys a lot of guns. “
For some, the second amendment’s support for the right to take over arms may be a sufficient qualification for the US Senate, but many Georgian voters have longed for it more. Brown is targeting these voters with outreach efforts. “As we speak, I’m in Valdosta, Georgia, on the Black Voters Matter bus. We’ve gone across the state distributing groceries to thousands of families, “she told the digital media website, Refinery 29.” We’re giving away toys, we’ve got Soul Santa, we’ve got music. Part of our job is realizing that the holiday season can be a difficult time. That’s why we offer people some relief and let them know that we care more about them than about their voice. We care about them as people and we I know it’s a difficult time economically for people. “
Since the vacation, @BlackVotersMtr has provided groceries to more than 10,000 Georgia families. Tomorrow, our Collard Green Caucus will provide food to more than 9,000 families in 30 Georgia counties. This will bring the total to nearly 20,000. We stand up for the needs of our employees, train them and take care of them. pic.twitter.com/LPwktTJEDy

The COVID-19 pandemic was even more devastating in already financially troubled communities. The state has lost nine rural hospitals in the past 10 years, Senator David Perdue’s Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff tweeted. W.Although hospitals are not yet rationing supplies due to the pandemic, they are faced with difficult decisions about the time and resources they can use. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported Thursday. “Patients who are not bathed every day or who do not eat in time because there are not enough staff. Patients who have just not had an operation and need a nurse who can only observe them but instead has to share, ”the newspaper reported. “Patients with broken bone pain who wait hours for sedation because there are no ER beds, while ER patients wait for the ICU beds that their lives may depend on. These things are happening now. “
“Where has David Perdue been? “Asked Ossoff in his tweet.
Loeffler and Perdue’s pandemic response has focused on filling their own pockets. Loeffler “benefited from stock deals she had made from the day she received a private briefing for senators at the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, ”according to the Pointer Institute reported.
Regarding Perdue, the nonprofit stated, “January 24th – the same day as the Trump administration health officials privately taught Senators on the Coronavirus Threat – Perdue bought up to $ 65,000 worth of shares in DuPont de Nemours, a supplier of personal protective equipment used to prevent exposure to the coronavirus. “ He also invested up to $ 245,000 in Pfizer, the pharmaceutical company that made a COVID-19 vaccine.
Ossoff mentioned the trade in a viral debate on October 28 in Savannah. “Well, perhaps Senator Perdue could have been able to respond appropriately to the COVID-19 pandemic had it not been for several federal investigations into insider trading,” Ossoff said. “It’s not just that you’re a crook, Senator. It’s that you are attacking the health of the people you represent. You said COVID-19 was no more deadly than the flu. You said it wouldn’t give a significant increase. ” in cases. All this time, you have taken care of your own wealth and portfolio. “
