Michelle Nunn and David Perdue shake hands at the Senate Forum in Macon

Obama, Washington Hot Topics In The David Perdue And Michelle Nunn Senate Forum

U.S. Senate Candidates Michelle Nunn and David Perdue met on the same stage together for the first time in Macon Thursday. And both Nunn and Perdue spent plenty of time tying each other to political leaders in Washington.

During the one-hour forum, Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn repeatedly linked David Perdue to Republican inaction in Congress. One opportunity she was used was immigration reform.
“David embraces what I believe is the attitude of gridlock in Washington that has not enabled us to get this done,” said Nunn.
Perdue responded not by challenging Nunn’s characterization or defending congressional Republicans, but criticizing the President.
