Lou Desso has thrown in the towel on his re-election bid after failing to garner support of his Republican Committee. Desso sent an email today to GOP Committee members announcing his decision saying he and his wife need"a rest" no pun intended.
The faux pas aside, it's clear he lacked the support of his own town committee and informed them he would not attend tonight's meeting. Instead we are likely to see either his hand picked deputy, Joe Bott or council member Kelly Hoffman who would have to resign from the legislature to becomea town Supervisor.
Democrats will choose their candidate later this month.
