Hillsborough Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Chris Mitchell said, “We are very disappointed that Wes has decided not to move forward with his campaign and wish him the best moving forward”
Republicans John Korsack, John Legg and Rob Wallace are the contenders for the GOP nomination which will be decided on August 14.
