Johnson's Widow, Democrat Certified For Special House Race Election

Posted: Updated:

(LEX 18) — The Kentucky Secretary of State has certified the candidates to run for the legislative seat left empty by the suicide of Rep. Dan Johnson.

Johnson's widow, Rebecca Johnson, is the Republican candidate who will face Democrat Linda Belcher in a special election Feb. 20.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes certified the candidates for the House District 49 race on Tuesday afternoon.

Dan Johnson killed himself after an investigation by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting unearthed allegations he had molested a teen girl.

Rebecca Johnson has blamed media coverage for his death.

The secretary of state's office says the deadline to write-in candidates "to file declarations of intent" is 4 p.m. EST on Feb. 9.

The deadline to register to vote before the special election is Jan. 22.
