Posted April 29, 2009 at 6:16pm

Republican Rep. Nathan Deal says he has some news to announce back home on Friday.

Deal said the decision by Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle to withdraw from the governor’s race prompted him to consider running, and he wants his constituents to be the first to hear directly from him about what he’s decided.

“People across the state were looking for someone… And I had to put it into consideration,” Deal said Wednesday.
