Nathan Deal

John Nathan Deal is a United States politician, the 82nd and current Governor of Georgia. He was originally elected to the U.S. House of Representatives as a Democrat in 1992 but later switched to the Republican Party in 1995. On March 1, 2010 Deal announced his resignation from Congress to run for governor of Georgia.
Deal faced a crowded field of candidates in the July Republican primary but ultimately faced former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel in a tightly contested August 10, 2010 primary runoff election, and won by fewer than 2500 votes. The following day Handel declined to pursue a recount and conceded. On November 2, Democratic opponent Roy Barnes called to concede the race for governor of Georgia, making Deal the governor-elect to succeed term-limited Sonny Perdue in 2011. » Read more on Wikipedia.org
