Many of Gwinnett County's representatives in the Georgia General Assembly stayed quiet on social media Monday, the day Gov. Nathan Deal publicly announced his intentions to veto the House Bill 757, the so-called "religious liberty" legislation.
Rep. Buzz Brockway did not.
The Lawrenceville Republican made his thoughts clear on Facebook, saying he "would not at all be shocked to see Christians abandon the Republican Party in droves" as a result of the governor's action.
Meanwhile, Republican Rep. BJ Pak, who represents the Lilburn area, voted against HB 757. He praised Deal's decision -- and condemned those calling for an override attempt.
Democrat Dar'shun Kendrick, whose House District 93 covers parts of the Snellville and Loganville areas, called Deal's veto a "wise choice."
Democrat Curt Thompson simply tweeted a quote from Deal's speech.
