Republican Governors Association Releases Statement on GA GOP Runoff

Republican Governors Association political director Paul Bennecke released the following statement on Georgia's GOP gubernatorial primary runoff:

“Nathan Deal brings a strong conservative voice to the race for governor. He understands that in order to move forward, Georgia must maintain low taxes, keep government out of the way of private enterprise and job creation, provide our children with a world-class education, and address Georgia’s water and transportation infrastructure. His ideas are exactly why he will be elected the next governor of Georgia.

“Georgia voters soundly fired Roy Barnes eight years ago, but that has not stopped him from running for governor for a fourth time. In his never-ending quest for power, Barnes has forgotten that the office of governor is about the people, not about himself. He failed in his first term, and the voters will again reject his arrogant grab for another.”
