Tola Marts Exits Congressional Race

In an email to supporters, Issaquah city councilman Tola Marts announced he was withdrawing from the race for the Democratic nomination to succeed Republican Dave Reichert for the 8th congressional seat in Washington.  Marts said that in a crowded field of Democrats, he was unable to secure the funding to allow his campaign to continue.If Marts would have been able to continue, he would have been the first Democrat in years to run for the seat while holding a public office.
