Jesse Kelly has announced on his Facebook page and in a message to the media that he's dropping out of the forthcoming CD 2 race:
I would like to thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, my wife Aubrey, and our supporters for their unwavering commitment to the values that make America great. Looking at the results from Tuesday, we have decided to withdraw from the race for Congress in AZ-02 and to seek other opportunities. I will forever be thankful to our generous supporters and volunteers.
This move leaves Martha McSally and Mark Koskiniemi in the running in the Republican primary August 28th.
