Jonathan Harris drops primary bid

“This was a difficult decision for me, but ultimately the right one,” Harris said in a press release. “It is critical that civic engagement in our state continues to thrive and that we have a renewed commitment to growing businesses and creating jobs. Democrats are well-positioned to make sure both of these goals are reached, and I look forward to helping the party in any way that I can.”…

A newly wed with a 15 year old son and a new house, his position on row C of the ballot, the limited number of days between the convention and the primary, and the $300,000 fundraising limit under the public campaign finance system were just a few of the reasons Harris gave for reconsidering a primary.  If you take the family, the logistics of a campaign, and his commercial litigation practice, along with his economic development business, into consideration, “this just wasn’t my time,” Harris said.

He said it was a “twist of fate,” that “G” comes before “H” in the alphabet placing him third on the ballot.
