Roy McDonald Drops Out of State Senate Race; Backs Kathy Marchione

 

WNYT:

Roy McDonald's not talking tonight. But what he said the day after the primary, might have been foreshadowing to today's announcement.

"I'm fed up with politics," Sen. McDonald, R- Saratoga, said Sept. 14.

McDonald withdrew from the race Thursday, issuing a statement at about 11:30 this morning saying,
"After discussing the issue with family, friends, campaign staff and trusted advisors, I've decided that I will not actively campaign in the General Election on the Independence Party line."

McDonald implied that he's stepping aside for the good of the party, "I will be supporting all Republican candidates - including Kathy Marchione - in the General Election."
