Live Updates: Perdue says Ossoff 'can't stop lying' ahead of Georgia Senate runoff

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., is lashing back after his Democratic opponent Jon Ossoff accused him of profiting off the coronavirus following a series of stock trades Perdue made earlier in the year that raised the eyebrows of investigators yet was not deemed unlawful.

In a new campaign ad obtained exclusively by Fox News and set to air Tuesday – nearly a month before the critical runoff race in Georgia – Perdue's camp says Ossoff "believes if you repeat a lie enough, people might believe it," and categorically denies the stock trade attacks as "totally false." 

FAST FACTS

    • The race between Perdue and Ossoff is one of two closely watched Georgia races on Jan. 5 that will determine the balance of power in the Senate. 
    • If both Democratic candidates win, it will split the chamber evenly

On Monday, Ossoff held a press conference to blast Perdue for what he called "a pattern of misconduct and self-dealing" by his opponent, despite Perdue being cleared of wrongdoing by investigators earlier this summer.
