The Athens-Clarke County Democratic Committee hosted conversation with three U.S. Senate candidates—former 6th Congressional District candidate Jon Ossoff, former candidate for lieutenant governor Sarah Riggs Amico and Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry—on Nov. 11 at the Cotton Press. (A fourth candidate, former Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson, did not attend because of a scheduling conflict.) The winner of the May primary will face Republican Sen. David Perdue in November.
The Q&A sessions were moderated by state Reps. Spencer Frye (D-Athens) and Dar’shun Kendrick (D-Lithonia).
Here’s Ossoff on why he’s running, how to inspire people to vote, helping workers, student and medical debt, and climate change:
Here’s Amico on her religious beliefs, protecting workers, her top priorities and ensuring secure elections:
And here’s Terry on the Green New Deal, immigration, rural Georgia and labor:
