Amidst rumors of a police investigation, Eric Bodenweiser has suspended his state Senate campaign.
State GOP Chairman John Sigler says Bodenweiser told him Friday in an e-mail that he was suspending his campaign for personal reasons. A spokesman for the Sussex County Republican Party says party members learned of the rumors about a police investigation about two weeks ago into criminal allegations against Bodenweiser that date back about 20 years.
The Delaware State Police and the Attorney General’s Office haven’t yet confirmed any investigations of Bodenweiser, who last month upset Senator Joe Booth in the Republican primaries.
