Breaking: David Hunsicker has withdrawn from 7th CD campaign

David Hunsicker
The following message has appeared online and is being forwarded around. I am still trying to definitely confirm it, but it would appear that David Hunsicker is withdrawing from the race for the Democratic nomination to face Eric Cantor in Virginia's 7th Congressional District.
David Hunsicker 
Memo to all Facebook friends:  
I have seen the Delegate numbers from the counties, and it would seem that only a series of both unusual and lucky events could now allow my candidacy to move forward.
So that the various chairs and committees don’t have to hold caucuses and a convention with little value, I wish to suspend my campaign for the Democratic nomination for Congress from Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. 
I am a Democrat first and a candidate second. 
Mr. Powell, I wish you well in your efforts to prevail against Eric Cantor.
If this story turns out to be true, then Wayne Powell has secured the Democratic nomination and the general election between Powell and Eric Cantor has begun.

Update: This message did indeed appear on Mr. Hunsicker's Facebook page approximately 54 minutes ago.
