U.S. Senate candidate Nancy Harris, D-Boise, who had been seeking to unseat incumbent Jim Risch, withdrew from the race today on advice of her physician.

"Wednesday, I received medical advice that I needed to slow down and take better care of myself," she wrote. "Therefore, it is with regret that I am announcing the end of the Nancy Harris for Senate Campaign. I am grateful for all the people who have supported me, donated to my campaign and became my friends in the past year. I will continue to work for those causes I care about most of all: Women’s Rights, Medicare for all, and the Green New Deal."

Fellow Democrat Paulette Jordan, also running for Risch's seat, spoke well of her.

"As you may have heard, Nancy Harris, one of Senator Risch's challengers, dropped out of the race today," she wrote. "I've spoken with Nancy and I am praying that she stays in good health. She is a dedicated, hardworking woman with the best of intentions for Idaho and has been talking about important issues. I appreciate the authentic person Nancy is and I wish her well. Idaho needs new leadership and the movement to create change will continue to grow as we unify together."
