Posted May 1, 2009 at 11:35am

Republican Rep. Nathan Deal on Friday officially joined a growing list of candidates interested in being the next governor of Georgia.

Deal, speaking this morning in Gainesville, asked supporters if they desired a governor who would unify voters, acknowledge “the guiding hand of God in the affairs of men,” and other qualities.

“If you want a governor who does his own thinking, writes his own speeches and shines his own shoes; if you want these things in your next Governor of Georgia- then this is the deal for you,” Deal said, according to his prepared remarks.
