Rep. Jim Marshall Need Not Worry About Republican Valerie Meyers Anymore

Republican Valerie Meyers is ending her campaign to unseat 8th district Congressman Jim Marshall (D - Georgia).

Bonaire Republican Valerie Meyers announced Wednesday that she's dropping out of the race for the Eighth Congressional District.

She released this statement:

"While we have achieved much in our campaign efforts, I believe taking this step is the right thing for me and my family at this time. I have enjoyed working with all of our wonderful volunteers and appreciate the opportunities I have been given along the way."

Meyers announced her candidacy last November. There are no campaign finance reports found for Meyers on the Federal Elections Commission web site. Generally, federal candidates are not required to file an FEC report unless they have raised or spent $5,000.
