DALTON, Ga. (AP) — The mayor of a northwest Georgia city says he’s considering a run for governor.

Dalton Mayor David Pennington tells The Daily Citizen that he is mulling a Republican primary challenge next year to Gov. Nathan Deal.

Pennington says people he met during recent political battles about transportation funding have been urging him to run. He says he has 15,000 people on an email list that receive periodic issues statements from him.

The mayor acknowledges that challenging the incumbent governor in a primary would be “a tall mountain to climb.”

Pennington says he will decide whether to run in the next 60 days.
