Logue Drops from State Senate Race

Republican Assemblyman and state Senate candidate Dan Logue is withdrawing from the Senate race due to health reasons. Logue will stay in his race for re-election to his Assembly seat.

Logue’s campaign said today the assemblyman has been undergoing treatment for gout in his foot. When he went for a check up, it was learned that antibiotic he was using was causing kidney failure.

Over the weekend, his doctors said he needs additional treatment over the next four to six weeks, change his diet and medicine.

Logue is expected to fully recover.

Logue’s withdrawal leaves four candidates in the special election to the 4th Senate seat. The seat opened in August when congressional candidate Doug LaMalfa resigned so he could concentrate on the November election.

Assemblyman Jim Nielsen, former Chico Unified School Board trustee Jann Reed, Chico rancher Dan Levine and Democrat Mickey Harrington are the remaining candidates.
