Gale Drops Out of 2nd District Race


John Gale has announced that he is dropping out of the race for State Representative in the 2nd District. Gale's withdrawal leaves only Democrat Barnaby Horton and Republican Peter Brush in the race to replace State Representative Tom Ritter, who is not seeking re-election.

Gale lost to Horton in last month's Democratic Primary by only 70 votes. Cynthia Jennings, who also ran in the primary, has already dropped out of the race.

While saying he felt he "certainly had a good chance of success" in the general election, Gale went on to say that, after discussing the matter with family and supporters, he decided that ending his campaign now would be in the best interests of "my family, this community, the city of Hartford and the Democratic Party."
