Ithaca-based chiropractor Dr. Ammitai Worob drops out of race for New York’s 53rd State Senate District, leaving just two candidates vying for the Democratic nomination.
Binghamton City Council member Lea Webb and lawyer/political organizer Leslie Danks Burke are the only two Democrats left in the race, according to Ithaca Voice. Following his end of campaign announcement, Worob endorsed Webb for the Democratic nomination.
Worob participated in a voters forum last month, but ultimately failed to gain traction as endorsements for Webb and Burke piled up.
