Former Republican Rep. Sandy Adams announced Wednesday she is suspending her campaign for Congress in Florida's 6th District "due to health-related developments."
"I recently discovered a significant health issue that demands my focus and attention," she said in in a statement. "Over the next several weeks, I will be focusing on my health and will reassess my campaign to determine if I can give it a 100% commitment. I owe that to my family, and to the residents of the 6th District." Adams, who lost her re-election bid in 2012 after one term, is one of three Republicans – including Adam Barringer and G.G. Galloway – who have filed to run for the Republican nomination to replace Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis, who is vacating the seat to run for Sen. Marco Rubio's open Senate seat.
