Johnson withdraws from Congressional race

By From page A1 | February 14, 2014

In a surprise announcement, Granite Bay resident Kris Johnson announced that she was withdrawing from the race to represent District 4 in Congress after announcing her candidacy only a week earlier.

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.
