Valerie Meyers, a self-described “Ron Paul Republican,” sent out a press release yesterday afternoon announcing her intention to seek the Republican nominate for Congress in GA-8:
Valerie Meyers, a mother of two who lives in Houston County, announced today that she will seek the Republican nomination for the 8th Congressional District. The GOP candidate will be chosen in the primary election July 20, 2010. Meyers is a Republican activist who is seeking public office for the first time.
She immediately took aim at Democrat Rep. Jim Marshall and his support of the Obama administration.
“Jim Marshall has voted to hand over $200 billion to the failed mortgage lenders Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Jim Marshall voted $700 billion of taxpayer money to failed Wall Street banks. Jim Marshall voted in favor of the Obama administration’s economic stimulus package – that cost taxpayers $600 billion.”
“Quite simply, we cannot afford Jim Marshall as a representative.”
“I am a concerned Georgian who is deeply troubled about legislators like Jim Marshall who vote to recklessly spend our country’s future into a hole. The actions of these legislators effectively make our children indentured servants to the federal government, selling away any real ‘hope’ for their future.”
Twelve of Georgia’s 13 Congressmen have supported legislation in the House of Representatives for a full audit of the Federal Reserve to find out exactly where the trillions have gone, Meyers noted. The only member who has declined to co-sponsor HR 1207 is Marshall.
Meyers says is running because she is outraged at Washington, DC and believes Rep. Jim Marshall is not working in the best interest of taxpayers and is voting to expand government.

Meyers will kickoff her bid for to unseat Rep. Jim Marshall on Saturday, November 7th at Sonny’s BBQ in Warner Robins. Details are available here.
