(January 20, 2016) – Democrat John Dickerson announced Wednesday afternoon that he was suspending his campaign for U.S. Senate.

He released this statement:

“After much consideration, I have decided to suspend my campaign for the United States Senate.

Unfortunately, despite the hard work of my team and our supporters, we have not broken through with our fundraising efforts.  As we all know, it is essential in any campaign to raise money.  So, rather than continue to press on, asking our friends to do even more, I have decided to face reality.

These last nine months have been remarkable, getting to travel the state and meet so many amazing Hoosiers.  We have a tremendous opportunity to give these people something better.  I will still strive to do that, but I will do so without seeking public office.

I cannot say thank you enough to those who believed in me and helped us get this far.  I look forward to pursuing other endeavors that ensure opportunity for all.  I hope you’ll join me in working to get Democrats such as Baron Hill and John Gregg elected this year.”
