Two knowledgeable sources within Smiley's campaign confirmed to Chief Political Reporter Mark Curtis and ABC6 Web Reporter Dee DeQuattro, that he will do so in a joint press conference at 11 a.m. tomorrow morning with Elorza.

The remaining Democrats left in the September 9th primary are City Council President Michael Solomon, Christopher Young, and Reinaldo Catone.
