State Representative Donna Sheldon has resigned her position in the Georgia House of Representatives.

Sheldon's resignation, effective as of Aug. 26, will allow her to "devote all of her energies to her campaign for U.S. Congress," according to a campaign press release.

“I’m proud to have been a part of balancing Georgia’s budget in tough times, maintaining our triple A bond rating and creating an even better climate for small business here,” Sheldon said in a released statement. “Now I am determined to take these experiences to Washington, D.C. to fight for the same things in Congress.” 

Sheldon, who resides in Dacula, has raised more than $210,000 for her campaign. Sheldon is seeking election to the 10th District Congressional seat being vacated by Rep. Paul Broun, who is seeking election to the U.S. Senate. Sheldon's opposition includes Gary Gerrard, Jody Hice, Mike Collins, Stephen Simpson and Brian Slowinski.
