Wood ends Independent run for U.S. Senate from Missouri
Independent John Wood announced today he will be dropping out of the campaign for U.S. Senate from Missouri.
Wood says the reason is that former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens did not win the GOP nomination, something Wood had said would have been “unacceptable, embarrassing and dangerous” for the party, the state and the nation.
Wood’s candidacy had been supported by former U.S. Senator John Danforth from Missouri. Danforth had vowed to create a super PAC to support Wood’s election and to support his candidacy.
Wood, who had served as an investigator for the Jan. 6th insurrection committee, said it had become evident there was not a realistic path to victory for him as an independent candidate.
