ATLANTA (AP) - Gov. Nathan Deal’s re-election campaign will be running TV ads from now until the May 20 primary in a significant statewide buy.

Spokeswoman Jen Talaber says the Deal campaign will be spending more than $1 million to air the ad beginning Wednesday. The ad argues Deal has lowered taxes, created jobs and made Georgia “the number one place to do business.”

Deal is facing two GOP challengers. Neither state schools Superintendent John Barge nor ex-Dalton Mayor David Pennington has launched a TV ad. Both trail Deal significantly in fundraising.

State Sen. Jason Carter is running unopposed in the Democratic primary. He has yet to buy TV advertising, stockpiling his cash for after the primary. Deal had $3.9 million in the bank as of March 31, while Carter reported $1.6 million.
