EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Republican state Rep. Elizabeth Scott of Monroe has announced she’s ending her campaign for the 1st Congressional District.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Toj2sb ) that Scott cited health reasons in her announcement Wednesday. She had suffered whooping cough earlier this year but returned near the end of the legislative session.

Scott says she plans to complete her term as state representative, which ends in January.

Her departure from the race against Democratic U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene in the 1st Congressional District leaves the Republican Party without a candidate.

Scott is one of Snohomish County’s most conservative Republican lawmakers.

She had announced her candidacy for Congress in May 2015.
