Paducah mayoral candidate Robert Coleman has announced he's dropping out of the race. Coleman cites ongoing health problems related to nerve surgery in April for the reason he's decided to withdraw.

"With the challenges that you face in the position of a city official, I realized that it would be better for our city and myself to withdraw," Coleman said.
