Citing his father's recent diagnosis with pancreatic cancer, Dr. Trevorrow has dropped from the race.
From his campaign:
“My parents sacrificed their entire lives to put me through school and help me become the person I am today,” Trevorrow said in a statement posted on his Web site. “I remain committed to restoring fiscal responsibility to Washington and bringing real health care reform to America, but in the coming months it will be in a much more limited role than a race for Congress demands.
“The only decision for me is to end my candidacy so that I can focus my full attention on helping my father and family through what will be a long journey.”
The Politics PA story notes an interesting piece of info:
His departure means car dealer Mike Kelly and businessman Paul Huber likely become the favorites to win the primary.
The story doesn't say where they got that little tidbit of info. But seeing how Kelly is rumored to be the party pick, I can understand why they pushed his name. Sources have told me that he was picked and pushed to run by the party. If that's true (which it seems to be in Mercer County) then that's the kiss of death for conservative voters. We'll see.
