WACO, Texas – Benny Sims has officially withdrawn from the Waco Mayoral race.

FOX44 News first reported that the fitness instructor Benny Sims was dropping out of the race back in June.

On Monday, The City of Waco announced Sims had filed a certificate with the City Secretary to abandon his candidacy.

This leaves District Four Councilman Dillon Meek and David Morrow to battle it out for the seat Mayor Kyle Deaver currently holds.

Deaver has decided not to run again.

The election has been pushed back until November due to COVID-19.
