Pat Hogan has decided to end his run for Syracuse Mayor. The move comes less than a week after he took second place in a three-way democratic primary against incumbent Stephanie Miner and Alfonso Davis.
Hogan's decision also means he won't be running on the Republican ticket. Here's the statement he released today:
“Shortly after last Tuesday’s Democratic Primary, I personally decided that I was not interested in accepting the Republican line to challenge Stephanie Miner in November. At the end of the day, I am a proud life-long Democrat. I am disappointed that the people of Syracuse will not have a choice for Mayor this November. Receiving 53% of the vote in a primary is not a resounding victory. I hope Mayor Miner is humbled by those numbers and works hard over the next four years to be less divisive and confrontational.”
