Governor Nathan Deal

101103 Atlanta: Georgia governor-elect, Nathan Deal spoke at a press conference from the governor’s office at the Georgia State Capitol Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010 after leading a historic Republican sweep of Georgia on Tuesday, soundly defeating Democrat Roy Barnes. Deal’s victory consolidates the state’s political power in North Georgia for years to come: The governor-elect and the lieutenant governor are from Gainesville, and the House speaker is from Blue Ridge. All three are Republicans. With 100 percent of precincts reporting as of Wednesday morning, Deal had defeated Barnes by more than a quarter-million votes, and his margin of victory was a solid 10 percentage points: 53 percent to 43 percent. Libertarian John Monds wound up with 4 percent. John Spink jspink@ajc.com
