Eugene Yu announces for U. S. Senate today ahead of the S. E. NFRW convention in Atlanta.

He said, “Vote for Yu for you!”
His announcement:

From the AJC’s Political Insider:

We’re about to get a new Republican candidate in the 2014 race for U.S. Senate – but not anyone most of you have heard of, or would expect.

Eugene Chin Yu, a Korean-born but long-time resident of Augusta, has engaged political consultant Rich Thompson and is expected to announce his candidacy on Friday.

So far as we know, he’d be the first Korean to run for statewide office in Georgia.

Yu came here as a teenager, graduated from Butler High School in Augusta, and quickly became an American citizen. Yu, 60, is the past president of the Federation of Korean Associations, a group that he’s told others will help finance a multi-million dollar campaign.

From his official biography:

“He has dedicated his life to protecting the lives and freedom of Americans as a member of the United States Army military police, an Augusta Richmond County fireman, and a Richmond County Police Deputy. As President, CEO, and Owner of Continental Military Services, Inc., Yu supplied military grade armaments to our allies in the continuing fight against global terrorism.”

A March article in Global Atlanta indicates that Yu was also a consultant for “General Purpose Vehicles, which sells armored vehicles to the Korean and Egyptian militaries.”

Thompson, in a telephone interview on Tuesday, said Yu is no longer connected with the firm.

    I’ve been looking through the 7 announced candidates to fill the seat formerly occupied by RINO Saxby Chambliss and so far this is what I’ve reasoned out.

    The following three congressional candidates have been in Washington too long to take a chance on:
    Jack Kingston
    Paul Broun
    Phil Gingrey

    Perdue’s Cousin and Karen Handel are also closely tied to politicians but at least they are connected at the state level and not tainted by washington.

    The two interesting and most attractive of the bunch are Derrick Grayson (Herman Cain anyone?) and this man Eugene Yu. He seems like a great candidate to me based on this limited information and if he is for smaller government and lower taxes I will be all for him. He seems like the kind of guy who represents true American values and he isn’t a current politician which is a huge plus. KEEP LOOKING at this man and Derrick Grayson everyone, I think they may be the best choices so far.
