For Deal and Riley, loyalty is the tie that binds

 Rarely in Georgia has there been a political power couple as closely entangled as Gov. Nathan Deal and his chief of staff Chris Riley. As Deal wages what will almost certainly be his final political campaign, Riley will once again be at his side.

The intense loyalty flows both ways. And, some say, can result in ethical blind spots for both men. In nearly every scrape that has wounded Deal politically, Riley has played a starring role. And often taken the heat.
