GAGOP Chairman John Padgett Responds to Absurd Attacks from Georgia Democrats
June 18, 2014
(Atlanta, Georgia) – In response to attacks from the Georgia Democratic Party and liberal state senator Jason Carter’s gubernatorial campaign, the Georgia Republican Party issued the following statement:
“Governor Nathan Deal has spent his entire adult life in public service,” said GAGOP Chairman John Padgett. ”As a Captain in the United States Army, Governor Deal served our country with courage and honor. As a criminal prosecutor in north east Georgia, he worked for justice, fairness, and truth. In Congress, Governor Deal represented our conservative Georgia values and worked tirelessly to ensure that opportunity and freedom were always promoted. And as Governor, he has helped make Georgia the number one place for business; boasting almost a quarter million new jobs in just four short years.
“Governor Deal is a selfless public servant and to suggest that he’s hiding from anything is absolutely absurd. Our governor is the real deal.”
