Matt Farmer Withdraws From HD64 Race
The race for the Texas House District 64 has lost a candidate as young, Democratic hopeful Matt Farmer withdrew Tuesday evening via a video on his Facebook campaign page.
Farmer was pitted against Andrew Morris and Mat Pruneda for the Democratic primary, all seeking to unseat Republican Lynn Stucky.
Farmer, set in what looks to be The Chairy Orchard, is forthcoming about his decision to withdraw. He said family issues were occupying a lot of his head space and he "meditated" on the decision for the past couple of weeks.
In the video, Farmer said his decision to run was premature despite how fired up he was to create change in the district. Ultimately, he said his campaign lost momentum and did not think it was fair for all involved.
"I've decided to withdraw from the race -- not because i want to, but becuase I think I should," Farmer said.
Farmer said his name will still appear on the ballots when voters hit the polls for the primary election on March 6. He has thrown his support in the Democratic primary for House District 62 in favor of Andrew Morris.
