WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Michael Brown announced on his twitter account on Tuesday evening that with great disappointment he is withdrawing from the At-Large DC Council Race.
"I have some very important personal and family matters that require immediate attention," Brown said in a statement.
He went on to thank family, friends, and supporters for their understanding.
"I will not be making an endorsement, vote Democrat," he added.
An hour before he renounced Brown tweeted 'building support: we are on a roll' and showed a picture of race stickers.
