Ritter Dropping Out in Colorado

A source tells Political Wire that Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter (D) is ending his re-election campaign. A fundraiser scheduled for tonight was canceled and all campaign staff was sent home in the middle of the day.

The decision does not appear to be fundraising related which has reportedly gone better than expected.

Update: The Hotline and The Fix confirm our report that Ritter is dropping his bid.

Update II: The Denver Post reports Ritter "is planning an 11 a.m. press conference Wednesday at which he is expected to announce that he will withdraw from the race for governor."
