Yu Enters Congressional Race
Monday, 24 February 2014

February 24--  According to The Augusta Herald, Augusta businessman Eugene Yu announced Saturday that he has dropped out of the GOP U.S. Senate primary race to run instead for the 12th District congressional seat now held by Democrat John Barrow.

In a statement released Saturday, Yu said his Senate campaigning led him to decide to focus on his hometown.

According to the statement:

"... This campaign has taken me all over Georgia. I have met many great people and listened to their concerns while discussing many ways to restore the American Dream. Being blessed with donors, supporters, and countless volunteers in my district, I realized that I need to give back to my hometown and my district first, where it has given me the most.Many have tried and failed, but I know I will bring the 12th Congressional seat back into Republican hands. The people of our district deserve a true conservative representing them, and with a servant's heart I will be that person.

With my campaign team running on all cylinders and with the strength of our supporters across the state, I will be the hardest working candidate during this election, focusing my attention on the needs of the people of the 12th Congressional district. Take notice John Barrow, your career as a Washington politician is coming to an end! Washington is getting a Yu Turn! "
