INDIANAPOLIS – Democrat John Dickerson announced Wednesday he has dropped out of the race for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Sen. Dan Coats.

“Unfortunately, despite the hard work of my team and our supporters, we have not broken through with our fundraising efforts,” Dickerson said in a statement.

Dickerson said the past nine months of traveling and meeting many amazing Hoosiers has been remarkable.

“We have a tremendous opportunity to give these people something better,” Dickerson said. “I will still strive to do that, but I will do so without seeking public office.”

Dickerson was the Executive Director of The Arc of Indiana. According to the organization’s website he retired from that position last year, but has continued to serve as a consultant.

Dickerson said he couldn’t thank his believers and supporters enough in getting him this far.

“I hope you’ll join me in working to get Democrats such as Baron Hill and John Gregg elected this year,” Dickerson said.
