(KSNW) Polls are tightening across the country as Election Day gets closer, but at least one race for Kansas State Senate is all but decided after one candidate dropped out.

“I’m voting against myself,” said Zach Worf, “but I’m not voting against my own interests.”

It was at a candidate’s forum on Monday that Democrat Zach Worf decided he would drop out of the race for State Senate in the 39th district, leaving Republican John Doll without an opponent.

“It was a shock,” said Doll. “I had no idea it was coming.”

Worf said he spent the majority of the forum agreeing with his opponent.

It wasn’t until the moderator asked the candidates what they disagree on that Worf made a decision.

“It made me take a step back and go, ‘Do I really need to continue to do this? Am I helping my community by continuing to do this?’ And the answer every time was no,” said Worf.
