Buffalo, N.Y. - Erie County Democrats are now looking for a new candidate for Comptroller.
The party's endorsed candidate, Lynn Szalkowski, formally notified the Board of Elections Thursday afternoon that she was dropping out of the race.
The move by Szalkowski does not come as a big surprise. She had not been campaigning at all since she was endorsed by the party in May.
Ten days ago, 2 On Your Side's Scott Brown reported that Szalkowski was likely to get out of the race.
The Democratic party now has eight days to come up with another candidate to run against incumbent Stefan Mychajliw.
