Palumbo pulls out of congressional race

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Lexington businessman Joe Palumbo has withdrawn his candidacy for the US House.

Citing family and business commitments, Palumbo says he's concluded now is not the time to start a political career.

He had been seeking the Democratic nomination in hopes of challenging freshman Republican Congressman Andy Barr in Central Kentucky.

Two other Democrats remain in the hunt for the nomination, Elizabeth Jensen and Michael Coblenz.

Because it's important to us to ensure impartiality, we also need to mention that Palumbo is the husband of WKYT anchor Jennifer Palumbo.
