SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The former state Democratic Party chairwoman is withdrawing her bid to be mayor of Utah's largest city. Meghan Holbrook says she is dropping her bid to replace Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson.

Instead, she will accept Governor Jon Huntsman's request to serve on the state Transportation Commission.

That leaves eight candidates vying for the mayor's job. Holbrook had raised more than $18,000 to campaign for the race. But that's still behind the leader, city councilman Keith Christensen. He has raised more than $250,000.
