Bruce McCain Pulls Out of Sheriff's Race

As first reported this morning at Blue Oregon, Bruce McCain has withdrawn from the Multnomah County Sheriff's race.

Below is part of McCain's explanation — taken from his comment to Blue Oregon's post, in which McCain certainly seems to believe interim Sheriff Dan Staton is now in the driver's seat to win a full term in the job.

Congrats on your nightowl scoop. Yes, I have decided to withdraw as a candidate for MultCo Sheriff after the Corrections union voted 138-129 to endorse Staton and give him $20,000.


Normally this would have been just a big bump in the road, but I was running on a platform of MultCo needing a Corrections sheriff. That agenda was effectively rendered moot when the Corrections union voted to cast their lot with my Law Enforcement opponent. So, I chose to exit earlier (and hopefully more gracefully) rather than continue to swim upstream against what will now be a tide of endorsements for Staton.
