janice twoA transgendered Kingman resident is running for the state senate. Janice Palmer has announced she has filed necessary paperwork to campaign as an Independent in District 5, which covers all of Mohave County.

   Palmer previously conducted unsuccessful campaigns for Mohave County Supervisor (2012) and the Kingman City Council (2011 and 2014).

   Palmer said she thinks District 5 senate incumbent Kelli Ward will challenge for John McCain’s U.S. senate seat in the August, 2016 primary election. One of Ward’s aides said last week that the Lake Havasu City republican will make her campaign decision before the end of July.
