Lone Republican out of Providence mayoral race

Providence, R.I. – The lone Republican candidate for Providence mayor has pulled out of the race.

Daniel Harrop, a psychiatrist, says he'll instead run for the General Assembly against incumbent Rep. Edith Ajello.

Harrop tells The Providence Journal that voters in Providence have a wide range of choices for mayor, and that he'll be helping the Republican Party by running for the General Assembly.
