Deal faces financial woes

ATLANTA — GOP gubernatorial candidate Nathan Deal faces financial woes, according to published reports, throwing a new wrinkle into this year’s election.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Deal, along with his wife, invested $2 million in a sporting goods store their daughter and her husband owned. The store has since closed.

The Associated Press today reported that Deal “did not disclose two active loans on which he and his business partner owe a combined $2.85 million.”
