Fillon Not Planning to Drop Out of French Presidential Race

Updated on

Francois Fillon doesn’t plan to pull out of France’s presidential race and will use a press conference Monday to fight allegations he improperly employed family members, campaign officials said.

The Republican candidate will hold a press conference at his Paris campaign headquarters at 4 p.m. Monday, the second step in his attempt to recover control of his campaign after a Friday Facebook message where he called on his supporters to stick with him and promised to “stay on track.”
