This is the second Democrat, by my count, to withdraw from a race due to death threats. Really, really worrying.
Michael Treiman quit one week after he had announced his campaign for public office.

We need to recruit people who want to run in the face of death threats. Wear it as a badge of honor. People like that exist.

The FBI should be investigating these death threats and intimidation tactics of Democratic candidates.

Could be a mechanism by which security detail "kicks in" after some threshold is reached. Details would be tricky but I think it's possible.

I was disappointed that he withdrew but there are circumstances that his family was threatened and that's a whole other level

well the only problem with that would be is that someone could carry out his/her threat

Dropping out of a race because of death threats encourages more threats, but still, I can't really criticize any candidate who does so.
