Less than 24 hours before the election, a candidate in Madison's 8th District alder race says he's dropping out.

Ryan Corcoran tells NBC 15 he decided to call it quits after what he calls a negative campaign.

Corcoran, who works for the non–profit organization Dreamweavers, says he's throwing his support to former opponent and incumbent Austin King.

Controversy began when candidate Kami Eshraghi — who owns the Capitol Square's Kimia Lounge — recently moved to the district.

Madison's 8th district encompasses part of the city's downtown and campus area.
