INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Longtime social services advocate John Dickerson is
suspending his underdog campaign seeking the Democratic nomination for the
U.S. Senate this year.
Dickerson said Wednesday that his campaign hadnít been successful in raising
money despite the hard work of his supporters. Dickerson retired last summer
after more than 30 years as executive director for The Arc of Indiana and
announced his Senate campaign in August, saying he wanted to focus on
climate change, a strong economy and voting rights.
Dickerson endorsed former U.S. Rep. Baron Hill, who now is the only Democrat
seeking the Senate seat being given up by Republican Dan Coats.
Reps. Todd Young and Marlin Stutzman and former state Republican chairman
Eric Holcomb are seeking the GOP nomination.
