Republican Sean Parnell on Monday suspended his 2022 campaign for an open Senate seat in a crucial battleground state, Pennsylvania.

This move by Parnell, who enjoyed the support of former President Donald Trump, came just hours after he lost a bitter fight for custody of his three children, who in court testimony accused Parnell of abusing him.

Former presidential spokesman Taylor Budovich said Parnell called Trump to warn the former president of his decision to suspend his Senate campaign.

“I strongly disagree with today’s ruling and I am devastated by the decision. I plan to ask the court to reconsider the decision,” Parnell said in a statement.

“In order, the two most important factors in the judge’s decision surround me as a prominent US Senate candidate. I have nothing more important than my children, and while I plan to ask the court to reconsider, I cannot continue the Senate campaign. My focus is 100% on my children now, and for me I want them to know that there are no other priorities and that they will never stop fighting for them, ”he stressed.

For a year in the interim, Republicans predict they will win the House and Senate again

During his testimony at the trial, Parnell’s divorced wife, Laurie Snell, allegedly physically and verbally abused her and beat two of her three children. Parnell strongly denied the allegations.

Parnell is one of nearly a dozen Republican candidates running for the 2022 midterm elections, the GOP senate in a field that will soon gain the most contenders. Pat Toomey succeeds in retirement.

Seven Democrats are vying for their party’s Senate nomination in Pennsylvania. The high-profile race may ultimately decide whether the Democrats hold their razor-thin majority in the chamber.
