WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrat Lindy Li has withdrawn from the race to represent a southeastern Pennsylvania congressional district.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Li’s decision leaves Malvern businessman Mike Parrish as the only Democratic candidate in the 6th District race.
Parrish had challenged the validity of Li’s nominating petition, saying they had signatures from unregistered voters, people in other districts and members of other parties. Li said her notary failed to keep a proper log.
After a three-day Commonwealth Court trial, Li agreed April 1 to withdraw and not run for any other office. She vowed the following day that she “will be running again” but did not say for what office.
Li raised $60,000 during a December fundraiser in the International District. Her donors are now demanding their money back.
