Mitchell pulls out of 12th District race

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

Former Charlotte City Councilman James Mitchell has dropped out of the race to fill the 12th Congressional District seat vacated when Mel Watt became head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

The Charlotte Observer reported (http://bit.ly/1p6f9Pm) that Mitchell said Monday he had been unable to raise money in the crowded field of candidates.

Mitchell was one of six Democrats running for the seat.

Mitchell said his campaign finance report Tuesday would show disappointing results in the past three months. He said he would not be able to be competitive in the race.

Mitchell said he plans to focus on his family and professional career.
