Deal, Christie rally GOP faithful in Gainesville
Governor returns home in final statewide tour of re-election bid
Gov. Nathan Deal takes the podium to a appreciative crowd Saturday afternoon at the Gainesville Civic Center. Joining Deal on his statewide bus tour was Secretary of State Brian Kemp, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle other Republican elected officials from around the state, along with special guest, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Flanked by Republican allies on either side, Gov. Nathan Deal step forward on the stage, took to the microphone and basked in chants of “four more years” from the few hundred supporters gathered Saturday afternoon inside the Gainesville Civic Center. It was the end of the governor’s statewide bus tour, the last leg of campaigning in a life of politics that has sent Deal to Washington, D.C. and now back home to Hall County for one more re-election bid.
