In a Facebook post published Sunday, community activist Russell Rawlings says he is ending his bid to be the next Sacramento mayor.
During his run in the mayoral race, Rawlings participated in candidate forums. His top priorities include homelessness, affordable housing and public transportation.
Rawlings has endorsed former State Senate leader Darrell Steinberg.
"I am grateful for all of the support everyone has shown me as I championed these key issues in my campaign. The most important thing to me is ensuring these issues have a true champion and leader who will not only work on them but who can also shift the culture of City Hall to be more inclusive and collaborative," says Rawlings in his Facebook statement. "I believe Darrell Steinberg is that leader."
Rawlings says he will be canvassing neighborhoods for the candidate.
