Jordan won't endorse in 7th run-off

Ending several days of speculation, Jay Jordan, a Florence attorney who finished third in the GOP primary for the Seventh Congressional District, announced he would not endorse either of the two Republicans who are in next Tuesday's GOP run-off.

In a statement reported by John Sweeney at SCNOW:

I only ask that the folks who gave me the great honor of their support employ the principles I fought for in determining which remaining candidate deserves the privilege of receiving their vote.

Jordan finished in third place, carrying Florence and Darlington Counties, two of the eight counties that make up the Seventh District. Overall, he carried twenty-two percent of the vote. As his primary support was heavily concentrated in and around Florence, the lesser of the two Republican areas in the district, an endorsement could have played a role in tipping the balance in the run-off.

While Jordan will be sitting the run-off contest out, other also-rans have made endorsements in the contest. Former primary candidates Chad Prosser and Randall Wallace have endorsed Tom Rice while Katherine Jenerette has endorsed Andre Bauer.
