Derek Tidball Withdraws from CD8 Race

Our sources tell us Derek Tidball, the independent candidate challenging Gabby Giffords, has met with the Bee camp to communicate his decision to drop out of the race and throw his support behind Tim Bee.

Tidball had not filed his signatures, but apparently had enough to qualify as a candidate. The fact that he will now back the Bee campaign suggests Tidball had concerns about another two years with Giffords and saw joining forces as a way to ensure her defeat.

It is our understanding that Derek Tidball will be issuing a press release late Tuesday announcing his decision to withdraw from the race.
