Republican Governors Association: "We welcome Roy to run again in 4 years"

The following is a press release from the Republican Governors Association (RGA) reacting to the results of Georgia's gubernatorial election:

The Republican Governors Association congratulates Governor-elect Nathan Deal on his election as governor of Georgia. Deal defeated Roy Barnes, who was running for governor for the fourth time. The Republican Governors Association was a key investor in Nathan Deal’s victory, spending a total of $6.5 million on the race.

“While beating Roy Barnes the second time wasn’t as much fun as it was the first time, it mattered just as much,” said RGA Executive Director Nick Ayers. “His policies and ideas are poison to the people of Georgia. Nathan Deal will govern Georgia with conservative values and lead us forward to an even brighter future. But, we welcome Roy to run again in four more years.”

The Republican Governors Association was a key investor in Nathan Deal’s victory, spending a total of $6.5 million on the race. The RGA ran 10 TV ads and spent $225,000 online and gave $1 million to the state party helping to finance both mail and TV ads.
