From our friends at the Kris Johnson for Congress campaign:
Granite Bay, CA , February 3, 2014 – Kris Johnson, the democratic candidate for the US House of Representatives District 4, regretfully announces she must withdraw from the race due to an injury she sustained on Sunday. While not life threatening, it will require a long rehabilitation period that precludes her from the rigors of campaigning.
“It truly breaks my heart to drop out of this campaign, with hundreds of supporters reaching out to me as soon as my candidacy was announced. I am hopeful another candidate will quickly step forward to take my place to serve as a true representative of the people and resources of our district, which has not been well represented by the incumbent for over 5 years.”
Kris Johnson resides in Granite Bay, with her husband of 40 years, John Johnson, two children, two grandchildren and two big dogs. She is a graduate of Purdue University School of Engineering, MBA from University of Minnesota Carlson School of Business. United Way Women In Philanthropy Member, Purdue University Advisory board member, founder of local women’s outreach groups, and mentor to start-up companies through the Sacramento Angels. She vacations with her family frequently in Lake Tahoe and Yosemite.
