Ritter to withdraw from Colorado governor's race - The Denver Post

Gov. Bill Ritter will announce today that he is withdrawing from the 2010 race for governor, numerous sources close to the governor confirmed Tuesday night.

Ritter told other Democrats the job was taking a toll on his family and he could not be successful as a father and husband while running for governor, according to those briefed on the calls.
