Dan Johnson's Widow Will Not Run In Primary Election

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE 3) - Rebecca Johnson, a lightning rod in the state's 49th House District before she lost a special election there last month, has announced her intention not to run in the May primary.

Johnson, the widow of Dan Johnson, challenged Linda Belcher in the February special election to fill her late husband's seat following his suicide in December, initially called Belcher's win a result of voter fraud and vowed to contest the outcome.

On Monday, however, Johnson filed paperwork to have her name withdrawn as a candidate.

A spokesman for Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes confirmed that Johnson's name will still be on the ballot, but any votes cast for her will not be counted.
