The Republican campaign against Democratic Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper , a first-term Democrat from northwestern Pennsylvania’s 3rd District. will not include Brian Lasher after all.

Lasher, an Erie social studies teacher, had been the only announced Republican candidate.  

Lasher had organized a campaign committee with the Federal Election Commission in April. But Lasher’s campaign manager told his Facebook supporters Sunday night that Lasher “loves his students and he loves what he does in the classroom.”
