Ending months of speculation, Dalton Mayor David Pennington filed paperwork on Monday in advance of a run for governor in 2014, when he would take on a sitting Republican governor in the GOP primary.
Pennington filed with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, which will allow him to raise money for a gubernatorial run. Asked how much he needs, Pennington said enough to be competitive but did not give a specific figure.
Qualifying for the June 2014 primary starts in April 2014.

He’ll get protest votes, but unless Deal does something disastrous, he won’t be competitive (and he’d have to raise a substantial sum of money, too).
He seems to want to focus on no income tax in GA (like that).
Maybe we will see tax reform push in 2014 session by Nathan to protect his flank on this issue because it does have a great deal of support.
That would be great! We looked in FL, our state of residence, before returning to the states after working overseas for 25+ years. But we could not find a house that suited our furniture. Everything was open with few walls. We need walls to support our antique furniture. So, we looked in GA, just over the border, really. So far, we’ve not had to pay GA state taxes, but it would be nice to never have to worry about it. Our property taxes went up significantly 2 years ago! I don’t know this mayor to be for or against, and I don’t know that much about Nathan Deal. I read online, not local papers. I guess I need to “catch up”.
