Controversial Springfield pastor and two-time candidate for Massachusetts governor Scott Lively is leaving the political arena.
Lively told his supporters in a message this week that it was time to move on.
Lively, who made headlines in 2012 when he was sued for support of a law making homosexuality illegal in Uganda, received about one-third of the vote in the Republican governor primary against Charlie Baker last year.
He says he has plans to launch a new bible college in Memphis, Tennessee.
The Governor has not commented.
