A second candidate in the race for Portsmouth mayor has dropped out. Mark Geduldig-Yatrofsky announced his withdrawal Tuesday. About 10 days ago, Terry Hancock Sr. did the same. Both men cited the inability to win as being a reason for dropping out.
Hancock threw his support behind Lee Cherry, while Geduldig-Yatrofsky is supporting Kenny Wright. In addition to those two, D. Stefán Adams Sr., Billy Baker, Bill Moran and Elizabeth Psimas remain in the race as of this writing, although I have to wonder if a couple more won’t drop out soon.
The winner, who will be elected November 2, will serve the remaining term of James Holley III, who was recalled in July.
