Four state House candidates withdrew from the November general election ballot yesterday, the Department of State's withdrawal deadline.

Two -- James P. Carr, a Swissvale Republican, and David Posipanka, a Homestead Libertarian -- are from Western Pennsylvania.

Their withdrawals leave incumbent state Reps. Paul Costa, D-Wilkins, and Marc Gergely, D-White Oak, without challengers.

Also withdrawing yesterday were incumbent state Reps. Stephen Stetler, D-York, and Rod E. Wilt, R-Mercer. Mr. Stetler will become head of the Pennsylvania Economy League and Mr. Wilt previously announced he would not run for personal reasons.
