Hat tip to The Herald (Sharon, PA):
Donna Reese, a small businesswoman, said she had enough signatures for her petitions, which are due in a week, but was dropping out ’for the good of the Republican party.’
She endorsed Huber, 65, Meadville, because of his background in business, she said. ’It’s exactly the reason I ran. I’m a small business person, I try and create jobs, I’m frustrated with job loss.’
Beside Huber, five others remain: Steven M. Fisher, 52, Cochranton, a health insurance salesman; Ed Franz, 48, a Conneautville hourly worker at General Electric in Erie; Clayton W. Grabb, 47, Butler, a pharmaceutical salesman; Mike Kelly, 61, Butler, a car dealership owner; and Dr. Martha Moore, 52, Sandy Lake, a family doctor.
