According to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, "Nathan Deal has taken $3,245 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC... Deal voted with Tom DeLay 93% of the time between Jan. 1 2004 and March 31 2005."[1]


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. [2]

As an immigration reform advocate, Deal has introduced such reform legislation as H.R. 698, the Citizenship Reform Act which would eliminate birthright citizenship in the U.S.[3]

2006 elections

In 2006, the Democrats nominated John Douglas Bradbury to face Deal in his November 2006 bid for reelection. (See U.S. congressional elections in 2006) [4] Deal retained his seat.
