Georgia Governor

In the great peach state we are represented at the Governor position with a man by the name of Nathan Deal. Mr. Deal has been in office in January 2011 but is no stranger to office in 1992 he was elected to the U.S House of Representatives. However from his time in office in 1992 and time in office in 2011 many things have changed. The biggest change is his political class In 92 Deal ran as Democrat but over the course of 20 years he switched to the Republican Party. In 2010 Gov. Deal actually quit his job in 2010 after the Office of Congressional Ethics released a report on March 29, 2010, stating that deal appeared to have improperly used his office staff to pressure Georgia officials to continue the state vehicle inspection program that generated hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for his family’s auto salvage business. Deal later denied all allegations but felt he was being represented at the company and decided to part ways and then run for Governor, to later win. Deal didn’t get into his Governor position so easy though; during his camping race he won by just 2500 votes in a primary runoff. The people of Georgia loved Deals work in office so much that he was elected for another term in 2014. Since deal has been in office he has focused on two main things. The first Criminal Justice reform and the second Safe carry Protection Act, both primary focuses of the Republican Party as well. However in recent news Gov. Deal has taken some heat for his stance on the Syrian refugees, though Georgia is red state and houses mainly conservatives, many residents were not happy with Gov. Deal and his words actions and stance to refuges and not allowing them into the state of Georgia.
