Chael Sonnen Withdraws From Oregon Senate Race Due To Legal Issue

Chael Sonnen released the following statement regarding his decision to withdraw from the Oregon Senate race due to a 2006 legal issue that that may or may not effect his ability to run for office until 2011:

“In the best interests of my district, I am resigning from my campaign for the Oregon House of Representatives. A 2006 legal issue has arisen that needs my immediate attention. I am not at liberty to disclose the details, but my name was involved in a real estate case that requires a ruling. If the ruling is adverse, I would be disqualified from running for office until 2011. So, given that possibility, I have chosen to withdraw my name as a candidate in 2010. I will continue to contribute to my community and ensure that we have a capable candidate to run for my district in November.”
