Democratic candidates gather in March in Monteith Riverpark in Albany. Larry Johnson, left, announced April 25 that he has dropped out of the Democratic race for Linn County Commissioner because of health concerns. He said he fully supports the candidacy of Stephanie Newton, (seated next to him) who will face Independent candidate Gary Sullivan and Republican incumbent John Lindsey in the Nov. 6 General Election. Jerred Taylor of Albany and Renee Windsor-White of Lebanon are running for State Representative in House Districts 15 and 17, respectively. Both are unopposed in the Primary. Taylor will face Republican Shelly Boshart-Davis and Windsor-White will challenge Republican incumbent Sherrie Sprenger in the General Election. Also running are Kimberly Koops and Marty Wilde, both of Eugene, who are seeking the Democratic nomination for State Representative in House District 11. The winner will face the Republican Primary winner, Mark Herbert of Springfield or Joshua Powell of Eugene.
