Judging from his Facebook page, Casey Cagle has found the issue he plans to ride in the 2018 race for governor. Wrote the lieutenant governor (or someone at his direction):
Together, we successfully fought back against radical Atheist groups in Georgia. Yesterday, the Senate passed legislation that will protect religious liberties of all of our public school student athletes. This sends a clear message that Georgia is still God’s country.
Updated: Though this Facebook post went up after the debate after HB 757, the hybrid "religious liberty" bill, an aide to Cagle says the reference was to Senate passage on Thursday of SB 309, a bill aimed at the Georgia High School Association and its rules forbidding religious messages on athletic gear.
