Al White drops out of Senate District 8 race
Al White announced today that he is withdrawing from the Senate District 8 race citing lack of funding as the reason.
“Having a ‘U’ behind my name instead of an ‘R’ was a nonstarter for many of my former funders,” he said in a press release.
“I set a timeline with some specific funding goals for myself at the outset. After six weeks I was so far off those goals it became apparent to me I would not, in the long run, reach an adequate level of funding to run a viable campaign. I will be returning all contributions received.”
White met with Emily Tracy and they agree on a lot of the issues, he said.
“I think she would be a strong champion for the people of the district and bring a moderate voice to the state capitol. My wife Jean and I will be supporting her, and encourage all independent minded voters to do the same.”
