Former Rep. Nathan Deal

Republican  •  Georgia 9 Terms  •  Sworn In 1993
Last Term 2009 - 2010 View All


Deal was born August 25, 1942, in Millen, Georgia. He was educated at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia and served in the United States Army. He later worked as a lawyer, assistant district attorney, judge and member of the Georgia Senate from 1981-93, serving as president pro tem in his last term.

Deal served his first congressional term and the first four months of his second term as a Democrat. However, he switched to the Republicans in April 1995 after stating he felt uncomfortable being the most conservative Democrat in the Georgia delegation. He was reelected as a Republican in 1996 by a large margin even though his Democratic opponent, McCracken Poston, was endorsed by Deal's successor, popular eight-term Democrat Ed Jenkins. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4795077 Read More...
