DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democrat Kim Weaver is dropping her bid for a rematch against U.S. Rep. Steve King.

Weaver announced Saturday she is ending her campaign, The Des Moines Register reported.

Weaver says she is concerned about her mother’s ongoing health problems and threats she has received for her safety.
