Wachspress Quits Democratic Race For Congress
LOWER MAKEFIELD TOWNSHIP, PA Pennsbury school board member Debbie Wachspress has abandoned her campaign for the Democratic nomination to represent Bucks County in Congress.
Wachspress had racked up several key endorsements and held a hefty fundraising lead over her Democratic rivals in the race to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick. But, Thursday afternoon, she cited "lies and distortions" in her decision to withdraw from the race.
"Unfortunately, I now find myself in a situation where my family is going to suffer with this recent offensive and completely false narrative of who I am and my candidacy will also," Wachspress said in a written statement. "It is clear to me that these lies and distortions will be too big a distraction to overcome."标签：
