Cassville, GA – State Senator Barry Loudermilk today announced his resignation from the Georgia State Senate in order to focus his full attention on his campaign for the U.S. Congress.
The following is Barry’s statement on his resignation:
Over the past several years I have worked tirelessly in both the State House and Senate to promote strong Constitutional conservative values in our state government. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we take these same values to Washington D.C.
I am very grateful to the constituents who have given me the honor of serving you over the past several years, and I look forward to expanding that base and continuing to make a bold stand for you in Congress.
With continual attacks on our basic liberties, a massive federal debt threatening our future, and the impact of Obamacare breaking an already fragile economy, we are running out of time to put our nation back on course. Our children deserve a better nation than what is being passed on to them, and that is why I am going to focus my full attention on winning this race and serving the people of the 11th District in Congress.
Barry has represented Northwest Georgia in the State Senate since 2011 and served many of the same constituents as a state representative from 2005 to 2011.
