Deal: 'I think my record speaks louder than any words I can say on a debate stage'

Posted By on Mon, Apr 21, 2014 at 2:05 PM

"Debates are designed to determine where candidates stand on issues. For the three and a half years I've been governor, almost every week I have done what I'm doing with you right now. That is three or four times a week answering questions from reporters on virtually any subject they want to ask me about. The best way to know where they stand on issues and I have a great one. ... I think my record speaks louder than any words I can say on a debate stage."

Gov. Nathan Deal explains why he won't participate in any gubernatorial debates against his two GOP challengers, former Dalton Mayor David Pennington and Georgia Schools Superintendent John Barge, before the May 20 primary. (via the AJC)
