“After much consideration, and after talking with my wife Melissa, who has supported me unconditionally in my efforts, I have decided to end my candidacy. I concluded that in seeing no clear path to win the nomination it would be irresponsible and unfair to ask all those who have supported me to continue to do so,” Muroff said.
Muroff did not put his support behind any candidate in the Democratic primary, though he does say he will continue to support progressive candidates.
“I have deep gratitude and great appreciation to my friends and supporters. While this effort did not end the way I would have hoped, I plan to remain active in supporting progressive candidates and causes and fighting for our shared values,” Muroff said.
Muroff’s announcement leaves Greg Vitali, Rich Lazer Mary Scanlon, Molly Sheehan, Lawrence Arata, David Wertime, Thaddeus Kirkland, Margo Davidson, Ashley Lunkenheimer, Theresa Wright, and Lindy Li in the race.
