Tennessee governor’s race percolates

By Hastings Wyman –

Incumbent Gov. Bill Haslam, a Republican, is term-limited and as soon as the presidential election was over, Volunteer State politicos and pundits began to look toward the 2018 election to succeed him.

Georgia’s Deal ‘accentuates the positive’ in State of the State address

Governor Nathan Deal strove to keep positive in his annual State of the State address, which he gave yesterday at the State Capitol before a joint session.

The Governor first looked back on his early years in office when the state, still not out of the recession, had an unemployment rate over 10% and a critically low rainy day fund. Here six years later, unemployment is down near 5%, the rainy day fund has grown to over $2 billion, and the economy continues to excel.
