Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple ends state Senate run

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple says he will no longer run for the New York State Senate.

On May 18, Apple announced the run for the 43rd Senate District. He decided Wednesday, he will not run after all.

Sheriff Apple wrote on Facebook in part:

"I hoped to be a voice for moderate voters who had felt they needed a stronger voice in New York. However, after exploring this opportunity, I’m drawn back to the goal I have always set for myself and my kids which is ‘find a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life.’"
