ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland Democrat has dropped out of a congressional race after the state party said she cast ballots there and in Florida in the 2006 and 2008 elections.

Wendy Rosen, 57-year-old Miami native who now lives in Cockeysville, was set to run in Maryland's 1st Congressional District against first-term Republican Rep. Andy Harris.

In a letter to the state's attorney general and the state prosecutor, the chair of the Maryland Democratic Party wrote that Rosen voted in the 2006 general election in both Florida and Maryland. Yvette Lewis also wrote that Rosen voted in the 2008 presidential primaries in both states.

Authorities would neither confirm nor deny whether they were investigating. Rosen confirmed she was dropping out of the race but declined to comment further on the matter.
