DescriptionEmbattled Rep. John Doolittle (R-Calif.), who is under federal investigation over his ties to imprisoned former GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff, will drop his bid for a 10th term, according to a California political blog.

Doolittle may drop out as early as this week, according to the California Majority Report, clearing the way for former state Rep. Rico Oller to run for the seat.

Doolittle's office did not respond to a call seeking comment at press time, although House GOP insiders said the report was true.

UPDATE: Doolittle's office, while not commenting directly on the California Majority Report item, is denying that Doolittle is dropping his reelection bid.
