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.
