Coventry state representative Robert Nardolillo has dropped his bid for the US Senate.
Nardolillo’s decision comes the morning after the state’s Republican endorsement convention, where former RI Supreme Court Justice Bob Flanders scored the endorsement.
The two-term state representative said that he failed to raise the significant amount of money he felt he would need to mount a credible campaign.
“It is with great personal disappointment that I conclude my fourteen month campaign for the US Senate.” Bobby said in a prepared statement. “The Challenge of raising sufficient funds for a national class run has proved too great for me. That fact has led to making my organization too small to effectively communicate the benefits of my candidacy statewide.”
Nardilillo endorsed Flanders.
