Leesburg-- A Lee County man who wants to be Sheriff withdraws his court case.

Jimmy Kerfoot withdrew his appeal of the Board of Elections Wednesday.

He says it would have taken too long for a judge to hear the case.

Kerfoot was disqualified as a Republican candidate last month because he didn't turn in necessary paperwork on time, "July 20th is right around the corner so I'm going to put all this behind me and start fresh and qualify as an Independent and run in the general election. Everyone knows I am a Republican, just technicalities are forcing me to run as an Independent, that's all."

Kerfoot says he has gotten six hundred signatures from registered voters in Lee County. He needs five hundred to qualify as an Independent on the November ballot.

Kerfoot wants to challenge longtime Lee County Sheriff Harold Breeden.
