Governor Nathan Deal praises Senator David Shafer at Johns Creek fundraiser
Governor Nathan Deal spoke to the crowded ballroom, saying “[David Shafer] has been an important and stabilizing force in the State Senate.”
Lt. Governor Casey Cagle mentioned that Shafer was one of the first people he spoke to after first deciding to run for State Senate in 1994, and said:
David is one of those individuals I always turn to when it comes to championing very important legislation through the body of the Senate.
Attendees included Public Service Commissioner Chuck Eaton, Senators Renee Unterman, Frank Ginn, Josh McKoon, and Curt Thompson. Shafer has been mentioned as a possible contender for President Pro Tem of the Senate next year, as Tommie Williams is retiring from the leadership spot, but running not the Senate.
