One of the five candidates for Indiana's open U.S. Senate seat has quit the race.

Former Arc of Indiana director John M. Dickerson reported just $34,000 in fundraising in his last finance report in October, putting him at a 12-to-1 disadvantage against former Congressman Baron Hill.

He says he's "decided to face reality." Dickerson's withdrawal leaves Hill unopposed for the Democratic nomination.

Congressmen Todd Young (R-9th) and Marlin Stutzman (R-3rd) and former state party chairman Eric Holcomb  are seeking the GOP nod to replace retiring Republican Dan Coats.
