Daniel London - who was U.S. Rep. Ron Lewis' pick as successor to serve Kentucky's 2nd District - announced Thursday he plans to withdraw from the race.
"This was a hard decision," the 30-year-old London said in a press release. "But after speaking and praying with my wife, I've decided that it's the best decision for us as we start our new family."
London, a Republican who worked in Lewis' Elizabethtown office, also said he was "quite confident" he would have succeeded in his bid for office.
