This statement was just received by the FlashReport from Assemblyman Dan Logue:
FROM THE DESK OF DAN LOGUE
I visited my physician late last week and he informed me that some antibiotics that I had been taking had damaged my kidneys.
The doctor informed that unless I stopped taking the antibiotics and rested for six weeks, I could do severe damage to my kidneys. He also indicated that my health would completely return in 6 weeks and took a different medication.
As you may be aware, the Fourth District Senate represents all or part of 12 counties running from Placer to Del Norte. It is a vast district with many rural communities. 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.
For this reason, it is impossible for me to continue in any responsible way as a candidate for the Fourth Senate District. I want to make it clear that I have my Doctors full support and I will remain as a candidate for State Assembly District 3, the seat in which I currently serve and will focus on serving that district as effectively as possible. I will be fully recovered within a few weeks.
It is with a heavy heart that I step out of the Senate race, however, I want to extend my sincerest thanks to those who have supported me for that office.
It remains my privilege to represent the North State in the Assembly. I look forward to continuing to serve and protect our regions concerns
representing California’s Third Assembly District. Restoring the California economy will continue to be my number one priority.
Godspeed for a quick recovery for Assemblyman Logue. Of course Logue’s name will still appear on the State Senate ballots, which have already been printed.
