Kingston, Perdue hone attacks in Ga. Senate debate

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Republican Senate candidates Jack Kingston and David Perdue are taking sharp aim at each other's records in a debate that has featured several heated exchanges. Kingston, a Savannah congressman, questioned Perdue's business background and called him "out-of-touch" for living in a gated community on a gated island with a gate on his house. Perdue, the former CEO of Dollar General, noted his upbringing as the son of schoolteachers and said he wouldn't apologize for his success. He criticized Kingston's 11 terms in Washington, saying he's been part of the problem. Sunday's televised debate was the only one scheduled between the two Republicans ahead of a July 22 runoff. The winner will face Democrat Michelle Nunn in November in a race that has garnered national attention.
