In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Matt Farmer announced he is withdrawing his candidacy for the Texas House District 64 seat that State Rep. Lynn Stucky currently holds.

Farmer was running against Mat Pruneda and Andrew Morris for the Democratic nomination to be put to a vote in the March primary elections.

In the two-minute video, Farmer reveals that family issues are the biggest influence on his decision to withdraw from the race. He said his decision to run for office, though a passionate one, was made prematurely.

“Unfortunately, my name is still going to be on the ballot when you go to vote on March 6,” Farmer said. “There are two other candidates running in this Democratic primary, and I’m throwing my support behind Andrew Morris because I genuinely think he is better suited for the job.”

Farmer continued to say that he is proud of the work that he and his campaign have accomplished, but he feels it is no longer his place to continue his candidacy.

To hear his full statement, watch the official video from Farmer posted below.
