Abrams hit a similar note, saying Georgians set a record in the primary because “they understand what’s at stake. We’re not just redoing the 2016 election. We’re redoing the 2010 election” to redraw the political maps for the next decade.
Abrams previously told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she was "incredibly excited" about Ossoff's campaign, but the MSNBC appearance was her more formal endorsement of the Democrat.
Although she was neutral in the Perdue race during the primary, Abrams has played a more vocal role in the other U.S. Senate contest. She's championed Warnock, one of 20 candidates in the November special election challenging U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler.
Perdue’s campaign aides scoffed at the joint appearance of the two candidates, noting that both lost bids for governor and Congress.
“These two have one thing in common,” quipped Perdue spokesman John Burke. “They can’t win elections in Georgia.”
