Bruce Shuttleworth Dropping Out of 8th CD Democratic Primary. And Then There Were 7….

I’m hearing strong rumors from multiple sources that Bruce Shuttleworth is dropping out of the 8th CD Democratic primary, just trying to 100% confirm with the candidate himself. Meanwhile, I just saw this tweet:

RT @DranesvilleDems: @BruceShuttle sends regrets that he won’t be attending May 15 #dddcforum at @mcleanvacenter .  “Tough” scheduling…

So…if Bruce Shuttleworth is dropping out of the 8th CD Democratic primary, that will leave 7 candidates – 6 from Alexandria, 1 from Arlington County, none from Fairfax County (and no, Nancy Najarian still isn’t on the ballot, nor is she likely to be, despite her claims of being a candidate and her showing up earlier today at a candidates’ event in Arlington). Stay tuned…

UPDATE: Bruce Shuttleworth’s statement is in the comments section.
