Costello To End Congressional Run: Report
According to City & State Costello has told state and local GOP officials that he will drop out ahead of the primary, even though he filed petitions to run in the primary.
From City & State:
Costello reportedly met with state party chair Val DiGiorgio, former 6th District Congressman Jim Gerlach and several other top Republicans early Friday. According to sources, he indicated that he intended to seek a job in the private sector rather than face a costly reelection fight.
Costello has been considered one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the state, and is facing a primary challenge this year.
Democrat Chrissy Houlahan is the only Democrat who filed petitions for the race.
