BRADENTON, Fla. - Gilt-edged Georgia said it received strong retail interest yesterday in $314.5 million of general obligation bonds, attributing some of the demand to its public education and advertising campaigns. The sale is expected to continue today for institutional investors.

The fixed-rate bonds are being sold in two series, like most Georgia GO deals. This offering includes $9.5 million of Series 2009C five-year bonds and $305 million of Series 2009D 20-year bonds. Pricing information was not available by press time yesterday.
