Mr. Treiman quit one week following his announcement to join the race. The threats continued even after he left the race.
An unidentified man in a pickup truck threw a full soda container at Mr. Tremain’s back after he picked up his two young children at the babysitter. His children were with him during the attack. He was hit while shielding the child that he was holding.
He heard, “Liberal scumbag,” as the truck whizzed off.
As of now, there are no other Democrats aiming to replace Mr. Treiman’s candidacy.
