David Soknacki and Sarah Thomson drop out of Toronto's mayoral race
And then there were three.

Toronto’s mayoral race has two less competitors vying for the city’s ultimate political seat.

On Tuesday night, both David Soknacki and Sarah Thomson declared their mayoral campaigns were finished. Soknacki cited flatlining polling numbers as his reason for leaving the race.

Thomson, on the other hand, says her supporters helped guide her decision to drop out. She now plans to run as a candidate in Ward 20, Trinity-Spadina. It’s unlikely, however, that the move will make her path to city council any easier; there are currently 27 candidates running for the coveted seat.

Neither former candidate has endorsed one of the remaining front runners.

In related news, the most recent Forum Poll, which was released this morning and polled only 1069 potential voters—hurray for small sample sizes—says John Tory remains in the lead, while Rob Ford’s momentum seems to have stalled. On the bright, he did get an endorsement from Mike Tyson, for whatever that’s worth. [via Toronto Life]
