ATLANTA (AP) — In Georgia's hotly contested Senate race, Democrat Michelle Nunn and Republican David Perdue share the title of CEO but are attacking each other's business backgrounds.

Nunn has tailored her message to argue her experience leading a major volunteer organization was about lifting people up while Perdue's time overseeing Fortune 500 companies left workers behind.

Meanwhile, Perdue sees his experience as CEO of Reebok and Dollar General as one of "competing in the real world" that provides a rare understanding of how to get the national economy moving again.

Voters will head to the polls Nov. 4. Also on the ballot is Libertarian Amanda Swafford, a paralegal and former Flowery Branch councilwoman.
