Brookhaven, Georgia – Meagan Hanson, Republican candidate for Georgia House District 80, announced she received the endorsement of Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens.

“I’m proud to offer my full endorsement to Meagan Hanson in House District 80. Meagan will be a tenacious advocate for all Georgians, not just a select group of outsiders interested in propping up backbenchers. I know Meagan’s heart and loyalties rest in her district and with her neighbors above all else,” said Olens.

Hanson won the Republican nomination against two fellow Republicans in a tight primary election. Hanson is campaigning to replace Taylor Bennett, the second-string legislator who took the seat in a low-turnout special election. Hanson is eager to follow in the example set by Attorney General Olens and other leaders in Georgia citing Olens’ advocacy for government transparency and dedication to combating government regulation.

“To receive the support of such an important public servant as Attorney General Sam Olens is beyond humbling. His leadership in fighting for a limited, transparent government is an example I will follow,” Hanson said. “We don’t need a legislator controlled and funded by third party groups from outside Georgia. We need a leader who fights for our priorities and all the citizens of HD80, like Sam Olens has done for Georgia.”

The election for House District 80 takes place on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Early voting in that election begins Monday, October 18.
