New Ad vs. GA’s Governor Shakes Up GOP


Georgia’s Republican Governor Nathan Deal is in big trouble, as a result of the latest ranking of states by unemployment rates —placing Georgia dead last. With polls showing the Governor’s race in a stat tie, Democratic candidate Sen. Jason Carter wasted no time getting out a powerful new ad (above) calling Deal out. The script goes like this:

Gov. Deal: “Now my focus on job creation is paying off.”
Narrator: “Really? Then why is Georgia ranked 51st, worst in the nation for unemployment? Middle class incomes are falling. We have 9,000 fewer teachers in Georgia’s classrooms, 80,000 fewer HOPE recipients in Georgia’s colleges, 380,000 Georgians looking for work.”
Gov. Deal: “Now my focus on job creation is paying off.”
Narrator: “Governor Deal, we can’t go any lower.”

Short. direct and to the point, the ad has Republican Governor Deal and the state GOP squirming with lame rebuttals.
