If Georgians liked Gov. Nathan Deal's first term in office, they're probably going to love his second.
Deal saw his re-election Tuesday as a sign that Georgians support his nothing-flashy brand of conservative politics that promises progress on a few major fronts, low state taxes, a helping hand to businesses and little in the way of bells and whistles.
In his second term, he's thinking big and somewhat geeky. He hopes to update the state's 30-year-old school funding formula that educators have long felt short-changed Georgia students.
