DOVER, Del. (AP)- The Libertarian Party candidate for Delaware insurance commissioner is suspending his campaign and endorsing the Republican challenger seeking to unseat a Democratic incumbent.

David Eisenhour said Wednesday that while suspending his campaign for insurance commissioner, he is still running for clerk of the peace in Sussex County.

Eisenhour said he is urging his supporters to back Republican Benjamin Mobley in the insurance commissioner race. He said Mobley has a more free-market approach than does incumbent Karen Weldin Stewart, who won a three-way Democratic primary in September.

Eisenhour said that when he accepted the Libertarian Party's nomination for insurance commissioner this spring, the only announced candidates were all Democrats, and that he thought voters deserved a choice.

But after Mobley entered the race, Eisenhour concluded that he was the best choice.
