A Friday press release from Governor Nathan Deal’s office kept up a recent slew of positive economic headlines, announcing the state had set a job creation record in 2013.

The most recent fiscal year saw a 10 percent spike in job creation, per the release.

Deal stated the numbers serve as proof “that Georgia is already perceived by companies large and small as the No. 1 place for business” but the state “will not rest on those laurels.

“We will continue to cultivate a healthy, resourceful business environment that will attract the corporate expansion activity so important to providing greater opportunities for our citizens,” he continued.

The numbers serve as a continued boon to the governor’s re-elect effort, with him facing both two primary opponents and state Senator Jason Carter being the only Democrat in the mix.
