SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Citing health reasons, a state assemblyman is dropping his bid to run in a special election for an open legislative seat.
Election officials said Monday that Assemblyman Dan Logue's name will still appear on the Nov. 6 ballot in the special primary election for the 4th Senate District.
Logue is one of six candidates listed for the open seat of former state Sen. Doug La Malfa, who is running for Congress.
The district runs from north of Sacramento to the Oregon border. A runoff will be held in January if no candidate wins more than half the vote next month.
Logue's campaign manager, Cliff Wagner, says doctors told Logue to rest while he recovers from a medical condition. The Republican from Linda will instead run for re-election to the Assembly.
