Georgia State School Superintendent John Barge announced Tuesday he was running against Nathan Deal in the Republican primary for governor.

He got a little flack initially for misspelling “governor” on his website.  Probably not something he was directly involved in, but he gets the flack.  A sense of humor is the greatest way to treat something like that.  Todd Rehm at Georgia Pundit says it’s embarrassing to Georgia, that goes a bit too far, but it’s a mistake that shouldn’t happen. When asked about it, Superintendent Barge said, “It’s a typo, typos happen.”

He told us Democrats have reached out to him to run as a Democrat in the race.  Barge said we’ve already had enough Democrats who have become Republicans and he’s “been a conservative” all his life and will stay in the Republican Party.

He calls his platform E cubed–Education, Ethics and Economic Development.

Barge makes the case on why he should be the next governor.  Here’s what he had to say:
