Taylor Says No To 2008
"Charles Taylor represented western North Carolina for many years providing excellent constituent assistance and improvements in educational and health services. The decision not to run in 2008 was his to make. I respect that decision and thank him years of hard work as our congressional representative."
Those remarks by Ray Miller, chairman of the Transylvania County Republican Party, are typical of the sentiments of former U.S. Rep. Charles Taylor's many supporters following his official announcement Saturday night that he will not be a candidate for Congress in 2008.
