A day after announcing his run for the 4th district of Colorado’s House, newly-out Republican and former Bachelor Ben Higgins has announced that actually, never mind!


Higgins released a statement on Friday, via Variety:

“I regret that I must withdraw my candidacy. Despite my best efforts to pursue this opportunity in good faith, I recently received information that has made such a pursuit unworkable. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to move forward as a candidate. I find solace in knowing that our intentions and actions have been fair and sincere. I entered into this endeavor wanting to bring positive change to my community, and it is with that same spirit that I will move forward, albeit on a different path.”

What? Information? Unworkable? Who the hell has dirt on Ben Higgins, a stale blueberry muffin leftover from your PTA bake sale?

If you have the scoop, please, for the love of pete, send me an email.
