Indianapolis Democrat Keith Potts drops out of U.S. Senate race
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Keith Potts announced Monday he is dropping out of the race.
About five months after launching his bid, Potts announced on social media he won’t move forward with his campaign. Potts is an Indianapolis city-county councilor and after opting against a re-election bid for that office this year, Potts now said “new professional opportunities” will mean he won’t run for the U.S. Senate.
Potts’ departure from the race leaves Marc Carmichael and Valerie McCray as the two Democratic candidates vying for the open seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.).
