Perdue Holds Strong Lead in Another New Poll

Yet another new poll, released today, highlights David Perdue’s growing lead against his liberal opponent Michelle Nunn. The results show Perdue ahead of Nunn 48-43, led by Perdue’s “strength with Independents and female voters.” This is one of several recent polls showing Perdue’s surging momentum ahead of the November 4th election.

In reaction to the new poll, Perdue spokesman Mark Bednar said: “This poll is further proof that Georgians want to send David Perdue to the U.S. Senate to lead Washington in a new direction. David Perdue continues to gain momentum because his message of fiscal responsibility and new leadership is resonating across he state. Too many Georgians are struggling under economic policies championed by President Obama and Michelle Nunn. (more…)

Sen. Judson Hill: HERE’S WHY – Nathan Deal Has Earned Georgians’ Vote

Judson Deal

HERE’S WHY – Nathan Deal has Earned Georgians’ Vote

I  am proud to endorse our Gov. Nathan Deal and hope you will join me in sending him back as Georgia’s Governor for 4 more years.
Governor Deal has led Georgia in important ways:

Job Creation - Some point out that according to recent polls that Georgia’s unemployment rate is only slowly improving. The best indicator, however, is the national job creation statistic that statesGeorgia is 4th best in the country for job creation, and more and more people are getting back to work daily with fairly high paying jobs. In fact, over the past 4 years over 300,000 new jobs have been created in our state making Georgia one of the highest job creation states in the country.

Business Climate - Without an exceptional business environment people and companies will choose other states. Georgia continues to lead attracting both large and small employers to start companies and re-locate here. Why? Because business professionals and company owners know that Georgia is #1 for business as stated by CNBC and other independent analysts. Much of this credit goes to Gov.’s Deal’s focus of creating the nation’s best environment to work and grow a business.

Education - Year over year Gov. Deal has funded more and more money for public education. Even during the toughest recession times children’s’ education was protected and has been his top priority. Improvements have been made. Recently the passage of the Charter School Amendment helped expand school choice and provided inner-city students with alternative learning options. Furthermore, at a time when the sustainability of the Hope Scholarship was in question, Gov.Deal revamped Hope to insure it’s financial survival to help fund education for our Pre-K Program, Technical Colleges and higher education for years to come.

Georgia Newspapers Endorse Perdue for U.S. Senate

With just four days to go until Election Day, it’s clear that David Perdue’s campaign has the momentum to win on November 4th. As he shares his vision for how we can achieve different results in Washington, his message is resonating with voters, and newspapers across the state are endorsing Perdue as the best choice for Georgians.

In case you missed it, The Savannah Morning News, The Augusta Chronicle, and Marietta Daily Journal announced their support for David Perdue for U.S. Senate. Georgians see that Perdue’s proven experience and vision make him the type of leader we need in Washington to put our country and economy on the right track, while Michelle Nunn will only work to advance the same failed policies of Barack Obama and Harry Reid.

Here’s just a look at what they’re saying about why David Perdue is the right choice for Georgia’s next U.S. Senator: (more…)

Savannah Morning News endorses Deal
Governor ‘has passed the leadership test in key areas that matter to Georgians’

The Savannah Morning News has endorsed Gov. Nathan Deal for re-election, saying that even during hard times he prioritized the Port of Savannah and balanced the state budget without raising taxes.

  • “Unlike Mr. Carter, Mr. Deal has passed the leadership test in key areas that matter to Georgians: The economy, education, health care, fiscal responsibility and criminal justice reform. And he has done it by working with Democratic leaders like Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and showing a bipartisan streak that has rankled some rock-rib Republicans.”
  • “On a key economic issue, Mr. Deal consistently made the deepening of Savannah’s port one of his top priorities. Even when money was tight, he found ways to make sure that $266 million in state funds would be set aside when it became time to move some dirt on the $706 million project. In fact, every budget he submitted and signed into law include port funds.”
  • “Another area in which the governor has bucked the trend is criminal justice reform. Many Republicans reflexively take the lock-’em-up, throw-away-the-key approach to law enforcement. While a good case can be made for being tough, an equally good case can be made for being smart. That describes Mr. Deal’s efforts to steer non-violent, first-time offenders into programs that help turn them into productive citizens, as opposed to packing them into prisons at a huge public cost.”
“I greatly appreciate the support that I’ve received from southeast Georgia,” said Deal. “We’ve had a tremendous team effort when it comes to deepening the Port and improving infrastructure around it so we can move goods quickly and efficiently. Our work has paid off and all of Georgia will reap the benefits for many years to come.”

Keep Nathan Deal as governor

Augusta Chronicle endorses Deal

‘Our state needs a strong, conservative chief executive’

The Augusta Chronicle today endorsed Gov. Nathan Deal’s re-election, citing his strong record of accomplishment in boosting Georgia’s economy and bringing jobs to the state. The paper notes the alternative is an inexperienced state senator. “If you’d like another example of what happens when a liberal candidate with little Senate experience ascends to the position of a chief executive, look at the White House today and what its occupant’s past six years have wrought,” the editorial stated. “Georgia simply doesn’t need liberal leadership, under any name or wrapped in any moderate-looking sheep’s clothing.”

“I’m honored to have the support of my friends in Augusta,” Deal said.

“Augusta has been special to Sandra and me since I was stationed at Fort Gordon, where we had our first child. Together, we’re going to springboard off of the new Cyber Command at Fort Gordon to bring many private sector jobs to Georgians while enhancing the security of all Americans, and we’re going to build our medical school there into one of the top 50 in the nation.”

The editorial follows:

Re-elect Deal
Governor’s chair needs experience, not name recognition

By Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff

The biggest complaint among voters this election season is that there isn’t enough concentration on actual issues and accomplishments. So if we’re going to talk about why Nathan Deal should remain Georgia’s governor, by all means let’s stick to the facts.

Let’s talk about how Georgia’s unemployment has dropped from 10.9 percent to 7.7 percent while Deal has been governor.

Let’s talk about the estimated 295,000 jobs that have poured into the state’s economy under Deal’s watch.

Let’s talk about Georgia’s per-capita state taxes that are among the nation’s lowest.
Let’s talk about balanced budgets. Georgia has had three under Deal, all without raising taxes.

Businesses and industries are swarming to Georgia, and Deal is committed in his second term to make it even easier for people to do business in and with our state.

All that points to the type of fiscal sanity Georgians must keep.

And what happens if Deal isn’t elected? The Democratic candidate for governor is Jason Carter, who brings to the table all of four years’ worth of political experience as a state senator, representing a small portion of DeKalb County in metro Atlanta. He graduated law school 10 years ago.

Carter essentially is asking Georgians to pay very close attention to his last name. He is the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter. A full accounting of his failings as president would require a supply of newsprint our warehouse is ill-equipped to handle. Suffice it to say that the older Carter’s liberal policies that failed America in the 1970s likely would be reflected vividly in how the younger, inexperienced Carter would attempt to handle Georgia’s governorship.

If you’d like another example of what happens when a liberal candidate with little Senate experience ascends to the position of a chief executive, look at the White House today and what its occupant’s past six years have wrought.

Georgia simply doesn’t need liberal leadership, under any name or wrapped in any moderate-looking sheep’s clothing.

In a nation where so many aspects of our federal government are failing Americans, our state needs a strong, conservative chief executive to protect Georgians’ interests.
Please re-elect Nathan Deal.
