Loeffler and Warnock to participate in Georgia Senate debate

November 17, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and her Democratic challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock have both accepted an invitation to participate in a December 6 debate, hosted by the Atlanta Press Club.

(CNN)Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and her Democratic challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock have both accepted an invitation to participate in a December 6 debate, hosted by the Atlanta Press Club.

Stephen Lawson, Loeffler's campaign spokesman, confirmed to CNN Tuesday that the Georgia senator has accepted the invitation.

CNN previously reported that Warnock had tentatively accepted an invitation to debate.

Loeffler's participation was first reported by the Georgia-based Oconee Radio Group.

The Atlanta Press Club confirms both Loeffler and Warnock have agreed to the December 6 debate.

Loeffler is one of two GOP senators in runoff for their seats in Georgia -- the other, Sen. David Perdue, has declined an invitation to debate.

Both Georgia's Senate seats are in play after neither Perdue nor Loeffler were able to command 50% of the vote on the November 3 General Election, prompting a runoff scheduled for January 5.

Loeffler said last week Wednesday that if she and Perdue win, they will "save the country. "

Both Perdue and Loeffler have also found themselves in the tenuous position of campaigning amid the backdrop of President Donald Trump's continued refusal to acknowledge his own November 3 loss.
