MISSOULA - The Democratic field for House District 92 in Missoula has slimmed down after candidate Tim "Doc" McCue, MD announced that he is dropping out of the race for personal reasons.
"I want to thank the numerous campaign supporters including my election team, donors and community members for endorsing my candidacy," Dr. McCue said. "It was an exciting opportunity to participate in this upcoming election and think about how I could contribute to this great State," McCue said in a press release.
McCue met with fellow Democratic Candidate Bryce Bennett to deliver the news. "We had a pleasant conversation and discussed issues that I was hoping to see addressed in the upcoming legislative session, particularly medical education opportunities and health care." Dr. McCue continued, "In order to ensure ample health care providers are available for the citizens of Montana, it is vital that programs such as WWAMI medical education and Primary Care Residency Funding are not only supported, but also expanded. Additional health care issues such as including a prescription drug monitoring program, the need for tort reform and promoting primary health care...are also critical."
Dr. McCue stated that he's "passionate about the State of Montana and its potential". He also said he plans to endorse Bennett in his campaign for House District 92.
