Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle pushed a bill he thought was “bad” in “a thousand different ways” in the Georgia General Assembly to hurt the election chances of Republican gubernatorial foe Hunter Hill, then a state senator, according to a taped conversation released by another former rival. The revelation was made Thursday through reporting from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, which obtained audio of a discussion between Cagle and Clay Tippins, a former Republican candidate who was knocked out of the race in the May 22 primary.
