Fiala (R) withdraws his name

via the Advance;

"My best judgment has led me to the decision not to run for Congress," Fiala told the Advance.

Fiala said he was concerned about his ability to raise money for the race and looking down the road, said he believed that the congressional district would be redrawn to favor a Democrat after the 2010 census.

Money is going to be the deciding factor for anyone who is left. The NRCC will not promise any money and the DCCC will help their candidate. Is Lanza able to raise $1 million on his own in just 5 months?

There may be a new candidate speculation post with this new info later today, but the beach is calling.
