The campaign of Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., took down an ad which appeared to have enlarged Democratic rival Jon Ossoff's nose Tuesday after it was condemned as "anti-Semitic."

The Facebook ad, which alleged that "Democrats are trying to buy Georgia," featured the altered image of Ossoff alongside Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Both men are Jewish. The ad was first flagged by The Forward.

Blaming the "unintentional error" on the graphic design process, the Perdue campaign said it had removed the ad.
