SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Top Democrats in Oregon's state House have withdrawn their support from the party's candidate in an important swing district following allegations of misconduct.

In a statement late Monday, the party's House campaign arm said it would no longer support Bend Democratic candidate Nathan Boddie after an internal investigation had substantiated allegations of misbehavior. But the release, which contained no details on the allegations, appeared to have created confusion among Democrats more broadly Tuesday, with several groups saying they were waiting for more information before making final decisions about whether to continue to supporting Boddie.

A spokesperson for Boddie, who is running for election in the 54th district in Bend, said Tuesday that the campaign had not been given details of allegations, but generally denied them.
