Walsh Mulls Dropping Senate Bid

Sen. John Walsh (D-MT) "is engaged in internal deliberations with his political team about whether to stay on the ballot this year, sources said Tuesday, in the wake of a plagiarism scandal that has tarnished the appointed Democratic lawmaker's standing," Politico reports.

"Senate Democratic leaders in Washington and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee are not playing an active role in the discussions, allowing the situation to be sorted out between Walsh and his Montana Democratic colleagues... The talks come ahead of a key deadline on Monday, the last day for a candidate to withdraw from the race."

The AP notes Walsh has already postponed several upcoming campaign events.
