Johnson, a Democrat, said she sustained an injury on Feb. 2 that, while not life threatening, would require a long rehabilitation period that precludes her from campaigning.
Johnson had hoped to unseat U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock.
Her announcement leaves McClintock with only one other challenger to date — Jason Mallory, a writer/journalist from South Lake Tahoe.
The candidate field also includes a correction. Auburn resident Bogdan “Bo” Ambrozewicz, is running for Governor, not Lieutenant Governor.
The list of candidates in the other races is unchanged.
