Dalton Mayor David Pennington to run for Georgia governor | timesfreepress.com

Dalton Mayor David Pennington has launched his bid to challenge Gov. Nathan Deal in the 2014 Republican primary.

Pennington said today he has filed the necessary paperwork to become a candidate.

Deal will be seeking his second term after defeating a crowded field of Republican candidates during the 2010 election. He’s expected to campaign on his conservative stewardship of state finances and job growth. Pennington in his announcement took early aim at Deal, saying the state’s economic performance is trailing the nation.

Pennington touted his work as mayor of Dalton to reduce property taxes and license fees.
