Logue drops out of election for Senate
Citing poor health, Dan Logue is dropping out of the special election for Senate District 4, which includes all or part of 12 counties, including Plumas. He will remain a candidate for the 3rd Assembly District.
In a letter released Oct. 8, Logue wrote that he had been taking antibiotics, but his doctor informed him that unless he stopped taking the antibiotics and rested for six weeks, he could severely damage his kidneys.
“The demands of traveling and campaigning in such a vast region are rigorous and the requirements of running a competitive race conflict with my doctor’s orders,” he wrote.
Logue was one of six candidates seeking to replace Doug LaMalfa, who resigned the Senate seat before the end of his term to run for Congress.
Though Logue will not campaign in the special election, his name will still appear on the ballot.
If a candidate does not receive more than 50 percent of the vote, a runoff will be held in January.
Logue said he looks forward to continuing to serve the 3rd Assembly District.
