January 31, 2007

(Atlanta, GA) – Lt. Governor Casey Cagle released the following statement regarding US Airways’ decision to drop their hostile bid for Delta:

“This is great news for Georgia’s economy and for one of our most prestigious Georgia companies. Delta standing alone is in the best interest of all citizens, not only for Georgia, but for our Nation.

“I stood in strong support of Delta throughout this process and today’s success is a reflection of the hard work shown by Delta’s employees, Governor Perdue and Georgia’s House and Senate.
