Georgia Sen. David Perdue’s campaign mocked his runoff opponent Jon Ossoff for eating a vegan burger Saturday — posting a photo of the Republican with a plate of bacon.During a tour to support small businesses Saturday, the 33-year-old Democrat ordered from the plant-based burger joint “The Slutty Vegan” in Atlanta, CNN Politics reporter DJ Judd tweeted.“We got Jon Jon running for Senate in the building!” one worker shouted, according to the post.LIVE UPDATES: PERDUE SAYS OSSOFF 'CAN'T STOP LYING' AHEAD OF GEORGIA SENATE RUNOFFBut Perdue’s campaign quickly took to Twitter to troll Ossoff, posting a photo of the 70-year-old Republican next to a hearty breakfast spread of bacon and waffles.“@ossoff can have the plant burger, we’ll take the all-star special. Pick your side, Georgia,” the tweet declares, apparently referencing a Waffle House breakfast item.Ossoff’s veggie-centric visit also sparked criticism from die-hard carnivores, who said his diet is proof he won’t be a strong leader.“Beta,” one Twitter user bashed, as another called the food choice “embarrassing.”RNC RAMPS UP STAFFING, VOLUNTEERS IN GEORGIA, VOWS TO SPEND AT LEAST $20M AHEAD OF SENATE RUNOFFSStill, plenty of fans defended the pol, pointing out he likely chose to support the eatery because it’s black-owned and a local favorite.“The self-made business owner is a community leader and her business enjoys blocks long lines each weekend. @ossoff was smart to pay a visit,” one Twitter user wrote.But ultimately, Ossoff’s plant-based publicity stunt may have missed his target demographic, another user argued.“Someone tell him he needs to hit up a steakhouse. 100% of vegan burger joint customers were already voting Ossoff. It’s the meat & potatoes crowd he needs to win over,” the user said.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP
