|Description||Blaming a takeover of Utah's Green Party, candidate Diana Lee Hirschi plans to withdraw today from the race for Salt Lake County mayor. |
Hirschi said Monday that she would end her bid because the party has been temporarily "taken over by a faction with whom I do not wish to associate politically."
The withdrawal - Hirschi is joined by Linda Parsons, a candidate for state House District 34 - comes after infighting over who's in charge of the fledgling party and who will be its nominee for president on Utah's ballot: national candidate David Cobb or independent Ralph Nader, the party's 2000 nominee.
