On May 9, independent candidate Brent Roske, running in California’s 33rd U.S. House district, dropped out of the race. He endorsed fellow independent candidate Marianne Williamson, who is running for the same seat. There is no incumbent in the race; the outgoing member of Congress is Henry Waxman. Roske is a television producer best known for the series “Chasing the Hill.” See this story. California law does not permit candidates to withdraw their names from the ballot, so his withdrawal does not remove his name from the ballot.
