A candidate for U.S. Senate is dropping out of the race.
Kip Smith's assistant says the candidate is dropping out of the race, because he doesn't have the funds to continue.
He will make a formal announcement tomorrow.
Smith is a graduate of DC Everest High School and has working in health care in Rhinelander for 17 years.
There are still several candidates vying for the Republican nomination: former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson, Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, former congressman Mark Neumann, and hedge fund manager Eric Hovde.
Rep. Tammy Baldwin is running as a democrat.
The seat will open with the retirement of Sen. Herb Kohl.
