Frenette withdraws bid for Congress

HUDSON, Wis. (WEAU)-- The manager of indie folk band Bon Iver, who announced his run against Republican Sean Duffy earlier this year, has withdrawn his candidacy.

In a news release, Kyle Frenette says "Due to unforeseen circumstances in my life, I will not be able to continue giving this campaign and the people of the 7th district the time and attention they deserve. There are a number of other great candidates in the race who are ready to represent the district. I look forward to supporting whoever prevails in the August Primary."

Frenette managed two-time Grammy award winner Bon Iver and founder Justin Vernon since 2007. He announced his candidacy in February.
