"Today, I am sad to announce that we will have to suspend campaign operations due to lack of financial support," Smith said in a letter to supporters. "All campaigns must have some support from the voters and it has become apparent just relying on my bank account to pay for everything is no longer feasible."
Smith said that if he cannot raise $20,000 by the end of the month, he will end all campaign operations and return to his job selling houses.
"As of today, all precinct walks, meetings and events are canceled," he said.
