MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

A prospective candidate for District Attorney for McLennan County announced his plans to end his campaign on Tuesday.

Daniel Hare planned to run as an independent candidate in November. The Director of Career Development - Employer Relations at the Baylor Law School and licensed Texas attorney would've needed to gather 500 signatures from people who didn't vote in the primary to be listed on the ballot.

“In the days since discovering and making public the December filing error, it has become increasingly clear, there is not a viable path forward to get onto the ballot as an independent candidate. I also don’t believe that a write-in is the right course of action under these circumstances and I will not pursue that avenue,” Hare said in a video posted on his campaign page on Facebook.

He would’ve run against Republican candidate Barry Johnson later this year who will now run unopposed. Democratic Candidate Seth Sutton suspended his campaign before the March primary.
