Jack Wagner has bowed out of the Pennsylvania governor's race a little more than a month after he threw his hat in the ring.

Citing a lack of support from his traditional base, the announcement by the 66-year-old former state auditor general leaves the Democratic Party without a candidate from the western side of the state, KYW Newsradio reports.

In addition to his two terms as auditor general, Wagner previously served as Pittsburgh city councilman and state senator.
