Pennsylvania state legislator Brian Sims has ended his campaign for Congress. The hunky civil rights lawyer became the state’s first openly gay member of the state legislature when he was elected in 2012. He represents a slice of Philadelphia that includes the gayborhood.

In a statement emailed to supporters and posted on his Facebook page, Sims wrote:

I wanted to personally let you know that today I have decided to end my campaign for U.S. Congress.
When I started this campaign it was because I felt Philadelphians deserved an advocate in Congress – someone who would focus on equality for all Americans, creating more and better jobs, and ending the culture of gun violence in our streets.

Having walked the streets of the District, and spoken to thousands of neighbors and constituents, I now feel that my friend and colleague, Dwight Evans, is best equipped to take our fight for justice to Washington, DC and will serve Philadelphia well in Congress.

This was not an easy decision, but please know that I am so grateful for your help and support over these past few months.

For now, I have a re-election campaign to win and I hope that you will continue to support my efforts, especially as I work to expand civil rights and fight for justice and equality as a State Representative.

In support and solidarity,

Brian
