A Georgia Tech political group says Senator David Perdue snatched a phone from a student who was video recording. 

It happened while asking the Republican lawmaker a question about the governor’s race. 

Young Democratic Socialists of America’s Georgia Tech chapter, posted video from the phone on social media after Saturday’s incident. 

In a statement, a Perdue spokesperson said the senator thought he was being asked to take a picture, so he grabbed the phone to take a selfie.
