Ga. adding congressional district

Georgia is adding a 14th congressional district as a result of this year’s census.

“Today’s announcement reinforces my belief that Georgia remains one of the greatest destinations for Americans looking for great opportunity and a high quality of life,” Gov.-elect Nathan Deal said in a statement. “As our state continues to grow, so does our influence and stature on the national stage. I think it will serve our nation well to have another Georgian in the House. It will serve our state well to add to our clout in the Electoral College.”
