The Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate from Arkansas withdrew from the race Nov. 12 citing family health concerns.
Joshua Mahony (D) announced he would stop campaigning in a press release Nov. 12, the last day to file for the election.
Mahony’s opponent, Sen. Tom Cotton (R), will run without major opposition.
“It was my sincere hope to be their advocate in Washington, DC,” Mahony said in a press release. “However, in this moment right now, I need to focus on my family and place their interests first.”
The 2020 general election will be Nov. 3, 2020.
“I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to all those who have supported me during this race,” Mahony said.
Mahony deactivated his Twitter account, @joshuamahony, Nov. 14.
