PITTSBURGH, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania State Treasurer, Albert Baker Knoll, today withdrew his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for State Treasurer. 

In recent weeks, Baker Knoll has been advised by his orthopaedic surgeons in New York City and Baltimore that injuries sustained to his foot and ankle in a 2014 skiing accident require a second round of surgeries.  These doctors further advised that any extended travel during the campaign might complicate these surgeries and compromise Mr. Baker Knoll's long term recovery. 

Baker Knoll has communicated his intent to withdraw his candidacy to Joe Torsella and has pledged his full support towards Torsella's campaign for State Treasurer.
