Republican Senator David Perdue on Tuesday invited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York MP, to come down to Georgia and campaign for his democratic opponent.
The incumbent senator – who will have to resist Jon Ossoff in the fierce January 5 election – seemed to want to talk to a woman in the left of Congress in support of the Green New Deal.
– I want to buy your ticket. I want you to come. Perdue he told Fox News – Fox and friends.
Perdue and his partner, the GOP’s incumbent Senate, Kelly Loeffler, are struggling with democratic challengers in a pair of high-stakes election parties that could determine which party will take over the Senate in January.
President-elect Joe Biden is expected to travel to Peach State to campaign for the two Democrat challenges.
According to Perdue, Ocasio-Cortez “wants a green new agreement without compromise.”
“When Democrats have complete control over what they want, they will achieve huge comprehensive changes in America that they could never do with bipartisan demands,” the senator said.
Opposite Rev. Raphael Warnock, Loeffler also attracted Ocasio-Cortez to the race in response to a congressional woman’s tweet released last week that people must stay home for the country to catch the coronavirus epidemic. control.
“The AOC wants to shut down our economy, lock the American people in their homes, and entrust the government with every part of our lives,” Loeffler wrote on Twitter, adding that it is no wonder Ocasio-Cortez supported Warnock.
Ocasio-Cortez fired back “The disclosure shows that he appears to have donated public money to himself with a private jet and exploited corrupt tax loopholes,” quoting Salon’s article.
“If you’re happy to help with public funds, take a seat before arguing over stimulus checks to help everyday people in an epidemic.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s office later on Tuesday did not comment on Perdue’s invitation.
