HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Another candidate who ran for mayor in the June 4 Hattiesburg general election is withdrawing his name from the race.

Clyde Stewart officially dropped from the race Wednesday.

He released this statement:

"I withdrew my candidacy because I felt I had accomplished my goals in making the community aware of the role of gov't. He who slumbers on their rights has none! Get out and vote! And stay active in order to make Hattiesburg a better place. I would like to thank everyone that took the time to listen, I hope it helped."

Nathan Jordan also withdrew his name from the mayoral race Wednesday. He said in his statement that will support former Councilman Dave Ware.

Incumbent Mayor Johnny DuPree, Ware, and Shawn O'Hara are the remaining candidates.
