DescriptionBlaming 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.
