Johnson won election in the special election for Minnesota House of Representatives District 19A. The seat was vacant following Terry Morrow's (D) resignation in order to accept a job in Chicago as legislative director at the Uniform Law Commission. Morrow announced that he would be resigning his seat, which he won re-election to on November 6, 2012, on January 7, 2013. Johnson defeated Peter Strand, Robin Courrier and Karl Johnson in the Democratic primary on January 29. Johnson was endorsed by the party convention, but due to the late timing of the convention, all four candidates were still in the primary. Johnson defeated Allen Quist (R) and Tim Gieseke (I) in the special election on February 12, 2013.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.

The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."
