Deal campaigns in Albany, highlights education

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - With less than a month until the November 4th election, the pressure is ramping up in the race for Georgia governor.

Governor Nathan Deal has been making stops along the campaign trail, highlighting several issues, including education, which he calls the centerpiece of his platform.

Deal, who is the incumbent, says he is confident he will win.

"Obviously it is a statistically close race," said Governor Deal. "I think that we are ahead and I think we are going to continue to widen that margin."

Deal, Democrat Jason Carter and Libertarian Andrew Hunt had their first debate earlier this week at the State Fair.
