Despite being poised to enter the Republican Senate primary race for the second time in two weeks, Princeton biotech executive John Crowley once again withdrew his name from consideration today.
"John was deeply impressed with the outpouring of support for his potential candidacy for the US Senate. Many people both locally here in New Jersey and nationally had been encouraging him to run over the past week, but given his tremendous level of responsibility to his family, his company and to the US Navy, he's decided not to enter the US Senate race this year," said Crowley's friend and advisor, Bill Spadea. "I know there was a lot of legitimate anticipation that John would enter this race we've been upfront with the many obligations he has, and his decision had to come down to his family."
Crowley had a compelling personal story, and a huge net worth that could have been put to use to fund his campaign. But alas, the GOP really can't catch a break this cycle.
Dry those tears, John Ensign. Disgraced Goya Foods frat boy Andy Unanue is apparently reconsidering his decision to drop out of the race now the Crowley has pulled the plug on his bid.
