Despite an announcement on Wednesday that the most recent star of ABC's hit show The Bachelor would be facing off in the Denver state House district against Democratic Rep. Dan Pabon (R), the second-ranking member of the House, Higgins withdrew his candidacy on Friday.
"I regret that I must withdraw my candidacy," he said in statement. "Despite my best efforts to pursue this opportunity in good faith, I recently received information that has made such a pursuit unworkable. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to move forward as a candidate. I find solace in knowing that our intentions and actions have been fair and sincere. I entered into this endeavor wanting to bring positive change to my community, and it is with that same spirit that I will move forward, albeit on a different path."
