Laurel's Rasberry quits race for insurance commissioner

Laurel businessman Jim Rasberry is stepping out of the race for state commissioner of insurance, 7 ON YOUR SIDE has learned.

Rasberry entered the race in March. But Wednesday he submitted a letter to Mississippi Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Dowdy requesting to be removed from the August 7 ballot. 

Rasberry says he exhausted all outlets to raise the type of money needed in order to be a serious contender in the race. 

This was Rasberry's first political race.
