SILVERTON – Patrick Swonger of Silverton announced an end to his campaign for the Colorado House on Tuesday this week.

“I am withdrawing from the race to support Mike McLachlan in his bid to represent the 59th District,” announced Swonger. “Thank you to everyone that worked on my campaign and gathered signatures. It’s been an amazing experience to meet and work with so many people dedicated to progress and prosperity for Colorado.”

Swonger and campaign volunteers were on schedule to collect the thousand signatures needed by April 2, to petition on the ballot for the Democratic primary in June. “It takes financial resources to make a successful run for state office,” said Swonger. “The need to fund a district-wide primary and a fall campaign made this race too expensive for me to continue.”
