Civil rights attorney Lee Merritt, of Plano, is no longer in the race for the democratic nomination for Texas attorney general.
He suspended his campaign Thursday.
Leading vote-getter, ACLU attorney Rochelle Garza, will face former Galveston Mayor Joe Jaworski in a runoff election in May.
Merritt endorsed Garza after exiting the race.
There is also a runoff in the Republican race for attorney general between incumbent Ken Paxton and Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush.
