Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff is embracing far-left lawmaker Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.). In an interview on Sunday, Ossoff said he welcomes the self proclaimed democratic-socialist’s support in his race against Republican Sen. David Perdue.

The Democrat also praised Sanders over his far-left “advocacy” regarding health care.

“I welcome his (Sanders) support…his advocacy for ensuring that health care is a human right in this country, for putting the interests of working families over corporate interests is welcome, is necessary, is appreciated,” Ossoff stated. “And so is his (Sanders) support.”

The Vermont lawmaker confirmed he supports Ossoff as well as Democrat Raphael Warnock in a tweet over the weekend.

This comes as Perdue, who has more than once blasted Ossoff as a socialist, put out a new ad highlighting his confidence in the nation’s economic recovery.

Perdue’s race for a second term in the Senate is critical to determining whether the GOP will maintain a majority in the upper chamber.
