Pritt decides not to run after all

Pritt decides not to run after all

Drew Pritt, a Democrat who said he would run for U.S. Congress against Tim Griffin (R), for U.S. Congress in the Second District, has changed his mind.

"I have withdrawn from races before and it simply is a question of too many hurdles to overcome," Pritt said in a statement. "I have my health first and foremost to consider. The fact I do not have the financial means to self-fund what will be a highly competitive race is an obstacle. And the fact a few people use the internet to spread malicious gossip and slander my name just is an added obstacle. In the end, I have to do what is right for myself, for my party, and for the people of the Second Congressional District and that is to withdraw my candidacy for U.S. Congress at this time."
