(AP) -

A person familiar with Jim Webb's plans says Senator Webb is dropping out of the Democratic race and is considering an independent bid instead.

A news conference will be held Tuesday, October 20. The person spoke on condition of anonymity and was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of Webb's announcement.

The Iowa Democratic Party says Webb will not appear at Saturday's major Jefferson-Jackson fundraiser in Des Moines.
