DOVER, Del. (AP) - A state Senate candidate from Sussex County has suspended his campaign amid rumors that he is the subject of a police investigation.
 
State Republican Party Chairman John Sigler said 19th District Senate candidate Eric Bodenweiser informed him an email Friday that he was suspending his campaign for personal reasons.
 
Duke Brooks, a spokesman for the Sussex County Republican Committee, said committee members learned about two weeks ago of rumors involving allegations of serious criminal conduct by Bodenweiser about 20 years ago.
 
Spokesmen for the Delaware State Police and attorney general's office refused to confirm any investigation involving Bodenweiser, a tea-party favorite who won last month's GOP primary.
 
Bodenweiser, who has skipped some recent political gatherings, did not immediately return a message left on his cellphone.
