PENNSYLVANIA – The Philadelphia Republican Party’s endorsed candidate for mayor has quit the race less than one month after revealing to The Daily Caller News Foundation she hasn’t held a paid job in eight years due to mental illness.

Daphne Goggins announced her withdrawal in a Facebook Live video Monday, one day before the deadline to submit the 1,000 signatures required to get on the primary ballot on May 21.

“I was only able to get 731 signatures all in total. I see no path to 1,000,” said Goggins, the first black woman to receive the endorsement of the Philadephia GOP. Goggins said the local party gave her “no support” in collecting signatures for her nomination petition.

“I began to realize the rumors about the Philadelphia Republican Party just might be true,” she said. “The Philadelphia Republican Party is not ready at this time to support a minority candidate. They have no plan on how to embrace and move into the minority community.”

Goggins received the endorsement of the Philadephia GOP on Feb. 13, but soon afterward she came under fire when her Republican opponent, Billy Ciancaglini, revealed she has been financially reliant on federal disability benefits since 2010.
