HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — All three Libertarian Party nominees for statewide office in Pennsylvania abandoned their bids for the fall ballot Wednesday, leaving no third-party opposition to the Republican and Democratic candidates for governor and U.S. Senate.
Filing papers to withdraw were York lawyer Marakay Rogers, a perennial candidate who was running for governor; political newcomer Douglas Jamison, an engineer running for Senate; and Kat Valleley, a Bucks County homemaker seeking to become lieutenant governor. The action followed nearly two days of intensive scrutiny of their petition signatures.
Green Party and Tea Party candidates had already withdrawn.
