Deal takes stroll down memory lane of office

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Governor Nathan Deal says he's accomplished a lot during his first term in office. He campaigned for re-election on Tuesday in Thomasville.

Deal talked about his plans to create more jobs and training inmates to better prepare them to enter the work force. He highlighted Georgia's recent designation by one publication as the number one state in which to do business.

He also praised his wife for her dedication to reading to students in every county in the state.

"One night she was at the mansion and she was laughing, I said what are you laughing about? She said let me read you this one, this one is from a little boy, if you know what happened in DeKalb County then you will understand how this little boy came to this conclusion, he said I'd like to be the governor, he gets to put people in timeout," said Deal making the entire crowd burst into laughter after telling a short humorous story about his wife and her interactions with children during her visits to schools.

Deal will be in Valdosta on Tuesday also.
