Lafayette resident and Republican businessman Ed Roy has withdrawn from the race.
The reason Asroy says, the money just wasn't there.
This is not the case with his opponents.
Scott Angelle of Breaux Bridge has 400 thousand, Erich Ponti of Baton Rouge has raised 300 thousand but the Ed Roy Campagin had only 55 thousand dollars.
Roy says he will find a different way to serve the state of Louisiana.
