Jim Geraghty reports on a "strange development" in the Connecticut Senate race: "Rob Simmons isn’t quite leaving the Connecticut Senate race… but he’s not going to campaign, either."

Simmons Releases Campaign Staff

Rob Simmons.

Simmons says that since he's been swamped by McMahon's millions, he will "scale back the campaign. We will release staff to pursue other opportunities and curtail campaign activities."

"While my name will remain on the primary ballot," Simmons concludes, "in the coming months I will devote myself to helping other Republican candidates for public office who I believe will bring to Connecticut and the Nation the leadership we need at this most difficult time."
