Another candidate has backed out of running against Congressman Andy Harris.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Bridget Kelly has pulled out of the race less than a month after entering the Democratic primary.

Earlier this month Harford County resident Joseph Werner dropped out to take a shot at county executive.

This leaves Chestertown physician John LaFerla and retired attorney Bill Tilghman still in the hunt for the Democratic nomination.

Harris won his last election against LaFerla with 64 percent of the vote and is the only Republican in the race, so far.
