GAGOP Chairman: Jason Carter’s Behavior is Sad, Disappointing

July 1, 2014

(Atlanta, Georgia) – When Site Selection Magazine ranked Georgia the top state in the country for business, liberal gubernatorial candidate Senator Jason Carter claimed that the accomplishment touted by Governor Deal was based on a “widely-debunked rating.”  Last week, when CNBC affirmed Georgia’s pro-business, pro-growth economy by crowning the Peach State as “America’s Top State for Business,” Senator Carter and his liberal allies doubled down on their attempts to undermine the ranking.  In response to their ridiculous behavior, the Georgia Republican Party issued the following statements:
“It’s sad when desperate politicians like Senator Jason Carter attempt to tarnish Georgia’s economic success story for the sake of political gain,” said Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett.  “Why would someone who claims to care so much about our state expend so much energy on downplaying rankings and accolades that enhance job creation and investment?
“If Jason Carter really cared as much about Georgia as he claims in his campaign commercials, he would join the millions of Georgians in thanking Governor Deal and our conservative leaders in the Georgia General Assembly for creating an economic environment that’s bringing billions of dollars in investment, millions of jobs, and thousands of new businesses to the Peach State.”
