TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike
Haridopolos is dropping out of next year's race.

Haridopolos said Monday he could not effectively serve as state Senate president and also devote the time necessary for a successful bid for the nomination to challenge Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson.

Haridopolos' campaign was in trouble as his fundraising totals dropped dramatically in the second quarter of the year and two key staff members announced over the weekend that they were leaving the campaign.

Former state Rep. Adam Hasner, former interim Sen. George LeMieux, Winter Park businessman Craig Miller and retired Army Col.Mike McCalister remain in the GOP contest.
