Dottie Sims, Democratic candidate to represent the 19th state House District, dropped out of the race citing “personal reasons.”
Sims said she “really enjoyed being a public servant” but also enjoys being a grandmother. Her desire to spend time with grandchildren Anna, 4; Jonathan, 2; and Katie, 2, means cutting back on other activities.
“They’re only young once,” she said, “and they grow up fast.”
She continues to work in her family-owned business, Hart County Auto Parts.
