It’s official. Third-party candidate Bud Chiles has dropped out of Florida’s gubernatorial race. From the St. Petersburg Times:
“I need to be able to look people in the face and really believe in my heart that this was a campaign I could win and really be viable,” Chiles told the Times/Herald. “I just got to the point where it was difficult for me to do that.”
Chiles will hold a press conference tomorrow morning to throw his support behind Democrat Alex Sink.
