ATLANTA (AP) -- Gov. Nathan Deal is touting the endorsement of some 110 mayors from across Georgia in his re-election campaign.
Deal made the announcement Monday during the Georgia Municipal Association's annual Mayors' Day Conference.
Deal says "Mayors for Deal" will play a pivotal role in his re-election bid this year. Also running in the Republican primary are state schools Superintendent John Barge and Dalton Mayor David Pennington.
In a statement, Pennington questioned mayors who would support Deal considering the ongoing investigation of the state Ethics Commission.
Democrat Jason Carter, a state senator and grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, is also running for governor.
Democratic Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed wasn't on Deal's list of supporters. Although the two have a good working relationship, Reed has said he will back the Democratic nominee.
