CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A former North Carolina state House member who pleaded guilty in 2019 after a campaign finance investigation says he’s leaving behind his General Assembly return bid a few weeks before the primary.

Former Rep. Rodney Moore of Mecklenburg County announced over the weekend that he was going to withdraw his candidacy for a House seat.

The Democrat served in the House from 2011 through 2018.

He told a news outlet that he’s dealt with health problems in recent weeks.

Moore was indicted in 2019 after an investigation found his committee has failed to report more than $140,000 in contributions and expenditures.

He ultimately pleaded guilty to one count.
