OKLAHOMA CITY – 

Former journalist Abby Broyles officially ended her campaign for Oklahoma’s fifth congressional district Thursday morning.

Broyles, who was running as a Democrat, made the announcement in an article written on her Medium.com page.

Today, I am ending my campaign for Oklahoma’s 5th Congressional District to focus on myself and my happiness. This decision hasn’t been easy to make; I got into politics because I wanted to help people. To give every Oklahoman a fair shot and a decent life. To my family, friends, and supporters who’ve stood by me and believed in me when I was on top of my game and when I fell from grace, thank you.

The candidate was swarmed in controversy recently after NonDoc reported she got drunk and berated several school-aged girls at a sleepover last month.
