AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - U.S. Sen. David Perdue made a campaign stop in the Augusta area Tuesday.

He was at the GOP headquarters as part of his “Original Outsider” bus tour. He says his fight for a more conservative economy is why he’s a better choice for Georgia.

Perdue is up against Democrat Jon Ossoff.

The candidates are facing off in a debate tonight. News 12 is partnering with other Gray TV stations across Georgia to put it on. You can watch it on NBC 26 or on our Facebook page at 7 p.m.

Their next debate is set for 5 p.m. Sunday.

Meanwhile, organizers say a debate between the candidates vying for Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s seat has been canceled after Loeffler and top Democrat Raphael Warnock declined to participate.

WSB-TV announced the cancellation of the Nov. 1 debate in a letter sent to the candidates.

The debate had already been postponed because of scheduling issues.

Loeffler faces a crowded field that includes Republican Rep. Doug Collins in a special election for the U.S. Senate seat she was appointed to 10 months ago.

The candidates faced off in one debate, held virtually with participants joining from separate locations because of the coronavirus pandemic, on Oct. 19.
