Bruce Pennington has dropped out of the running for Saline County sheriff. According to our partners at MySaline.com, Pennington says he has health issues and his doctor wants him to avoid stress. He made a statement saying that he is going to put his health and family first. Pennington, you may remember, resigned last fall after he was arrested for public intoxication in Benton. 6 Democrats and one Republican are still in the race.
