Gary Emineth announced via email Tuesday he is withdrawing his name from the North Dakota Senate race less than two weeks after announcing his run for the GOP nomination.

Emineth was the second republican candidate vying for Sen. Heidi Heitkamp's seat in Washington. With Emineth out of the race that leaves state senator Tom Campbell and Paul Schaffner, who announced his bid Monday, as the only republicans in the race.

Only one democratic challenger has announced against Heitkamp, Dustin Peyer.
