Joe Morrissey has announced that he is abandoning his race for state senate because of health concerns. He said,
“After speaking with all of my health care providers, I have decided to withdraw from the state Senate race and focus on rehabilitating my diaphragm,”
“For 3 ½ months, I have enjoyed going door-to-door and meeting with thousands of folks in central Virginia. However, at this time, my primary concerns are my health and growing family.”
Morrissey’s opponent, Sen. Rosalyn R. Dance, is now running unopposed in 16th Senate district.
