Rutledge out, Amedori in
Jim Rutledge and Carmen Amedori who were both candidates in the 2010 Republican primary for U.S. Senate here in Maryland both made big political announcements this week.
Via Facebook, Rutledge said the following:
Thank you to all my friends who showed such generous support in donations, ticket purchases, and sign locations. As many of you now know, I will not be seeking elected office in 2014, and will be filing my official withdrawal of my candidacy for President of the Harford County Council. Circumstances have changed for me since my decision to run in September, and I have made this weighty decision based on careful analysis of those facts in the context of what is best for my family and those whom I love most. God Bless you all. Jim Rutledge
