The End Citizens United PAC sent a letter this week to state Senator Daylin Leach informing him it is withdrawing its endorsement of his bid for the 7th Congressional district and asking for its money back.
“End Citizens United stands with the women who have come forward to publicly share their experiences facing sexual misconduct,” ECU President Tiffany Muller wrote according to Politico.
“The behavior is not acceptable in any setting and ECU does not tolerate it for endorsed candidates or candidates under consideration for endorsement.”
In the letter End Citizens United asks for the $5,000 they gave to Leach’s campaign back.
Leach said he was ‘taking a step back’ from his Congressional campaign, and has removed himself from the public eye without clarifying if that means he will be ending his campaign or is taking a break to try to ride out the negative stories and still run for the seat.
