INDEPENDENCE — Ruth Ross, one of five candidates for the open at-large seat on the Grayson County School Board in a special election on Nov. 8, has announced that she will withdraw from the race.

With her campaign ended, Ross announced her endorsement of fellow candidate Robert Benish.

In an interview with the newspaper on Monday, Ross explained that her decision to drop out of the race came after she and her husband began to consider a move to Washington, in order to be closer to their two grown children and their two grandsons.
