GOP AG Candidate Drops Out of Race


Republican candidate for Attorney General, Peggy Marshall Thomas, is withdrawing from the race for personal reason. The News Journal reports that members of her campaign contacted state GOP officials that she was leaving the race. While that will leave no Republican candidate for the AG’s office, the party could nominate a replacement candidate but they only have until September 4th, according to the state’s election calendar. However Thomas has to notify state election officials of her intent to withdraw and her name removed from the ballot, before that can happen.
