The Kansas Governor’s race has one fewer candidate.
Former state representative Ed O’Malley, a moderate Republican, announced on Thursday that he is ending his campaign.
In a statement O’Malley said “I know many supporters will be disappointed. I am, too. I cannot help but feel as if I have let so many people down. Yet, the flip side of our shared optimism for the future of Kansas has to be brutal realism about what it will take to get there. It was an honor to run this campaign. I pledge to continue working for the greater good of all Kansans.”
There are still 10 Republicans in the race, 5 Democrats, and 2 Independents.

I am hopeful for the future of Kansas and won’t stop working to strengthen it. I am forever thankful to the most amazing network of passionate Kansans who helped with this campaign. https://t.co/IU3Kic8ERF
