A former Democrat who switched parties to run for the US Senate in the Republican primary has now withdrawn from the race.

Charlie Hardy, a former Roman Catholic priest, had launched a campaign against US Senator John Barrasso.

He has now decided to leave the field to the Senator and his main challenger, Dave Dodson.

Hardy has run before, several times before, and admittedly, had little chance of success this time as well.
