Johnson received 4,181 to Davis’ 1,854 in Adams County and in Scioto County Johnson received 11,599 to Davis’ 6,599.

“Serving in the Ohio Statehouse as the representative of the 90th District has been one of the greatest honors of my life,” Johnson said. “I love my friends and neighbors. I will continue to work my heart out for them. I will continue to be their champion in Columbus.”

Johnson, a physician and the only medical doctor in the state legislature, has fought against prescription drug abuse, championing House Bill 93, which effectively shut down area “pill mills.”

Johnson joined the Ohio Army National Guard while still in medical school and served two tours in Iraq.

He served as Scioto County Coroner for 10 years before being elected to the Ohio Legislature.
