Whites said he made the decisions because of concerns about time away from his business. He had filed petitions for one of the two House seats from District 6, which includes Clark, Hamlin and Kingsbury counties, as well as rural Codington County and the eastern part of Beadle County.
Democratic Party central committees from those counties have a chance to choose a ballot replacement for Whites. The deadline for filling the slot is Aug. 8, state Election Supervisor Kea Warne said.
