UPDATE: Cagle also receives NRA endorsement. See below the fold for details.
Cagle is also the more conservative of the two, in a state that is leaning more and more conservative. He has promised to work for lower taxes and better schools, including lowering the dropout rate and supporting the charter-school movement. He also is proposing incentive grants to encourage local school systems to increase their interaction with parents via phone calls, e-mail and personal meetings. As we all know, parental involvement is the key to improved education results.
“You can’t have good jobs if you don’t have a good educational system,” he told the Marietta Daily Journal editorial board last month.
From the Cagle email I received:
As an elected official, Cagle supported Castle Doctrine, which gives law-abiding citizens in Georgia the right to protect themselves and their families from criminal attack. He also backed Right-to-Carry, Lawsuit Preemption, and No-Net-Loss of hunting lands in Georgia.
Because of his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and hunting issues, Casey Cagle has earned an “A+” rating from NRA-PVF, the highest possible grade granted to candidates.
“Georgia gun owners and sportsmen know Casey Cagle supports their gun rights and freedoms.” Cox concluded, “We urge all NRA members and gun owners to go out this November 7th and vote for Casey Cagle for Lieutenant Governor of Georgia.”
