U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal , who represents the 9th Congressional District up in north Georgia, may too may enter the race for governor.
Deal’s 12 years in the state Senate have been followed by 17 years in Congress. He was often mentioned as gubernatorial material back in the run-up to 2002.
There’s a meeting of Georgia’s team of House Republicans this afternoon to discuss the matter. Deal’s timetable calls for a decision by week’s end.
