A Democratic candidate for Vermont’s at-large Congressional seat has dropped out of the race.

State Senator Kesha Ram Hinsdale dropped out of the race Friday and immediately endorsed Senate Pro Tem Becca Balint.

“We felt very good about the possibility of a path to victory but that would involve trying to take votes away from another candidate that I deeply respect and that I have worked with over the years in Becca Balint.”

Ram Hinsdale is also concerned about the number of veteran lawmakers in Montpelier who have decided not to run for re-election and will now run again for her Chittenden County seat.

“The state Senate has lost a third of its membership.”

The candidates in the August 9th Democratic primary are Balint, Lieutenant Governor Molly Gray and Sianay Chase Clifford. The Republican primary candidates are Ericka Redic and Anya Tynio.
