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.
