George Demos, a Conservative candidate for the First Congressional District, has pulled out of the race, leaving Republican Randy Altschuler as the lone challenger to Rep. Tim Bishop.

Demos announced the end of his campaign in an email Friday afternoon, citing his wedding next week to his fiancé, Chrysa Tsakopoulos, as the major factor in the decision.

"Everyone who knows me knows of my deep commitment to public service and to being a strong voice for the Conservative cause," Demos's statement read. "Equally, everyone who knows Chrysa and me, knows of our deep commitment to each other and the joy we are sharing in preparation for our wedding a week from now. These two facts have now come together. Both my impending marriage and my race for Congress are deeply important to me. But our marriage comes first."

Demos had been running a campaign against Altschuler, who he would face in the Republican primary in September. Altschuler will now face Bishop in November's general election.
