After the Thompson Hill incident, Kerry Gauthier originally wanted to stay in the District 7B House race and let the voters decide his fate.  However, he has since had a change of heart.

The Northland's NewsCenter is reporting that due to immense political pressure and fall out, Kerry Gauthier will pull out of the race altogether.  He admits he has personal issues to conquer and the pressure of an upcoming race would be too much to bear.

His change of heart has been widely accepted by political leaders as the right thing to do.
