Candidates file for state, federal legislative seats

Several candidates, including some Kingman residents, filed as of Wednesday's deadline for seats in the state and U.S.

House of Representatives and state Senate.

Four Kingman residents are among the six candidates for the newly reapportioned District 3 seat in the state House: Democrats Matt Capalby and Richard Glancy and Republicans Lee Fabrizio and former state Rep.

Joe Hart.

Also meeting the filing deadline are Republicans Bill Wagner of Bullhead City and Maury Coburn of Lake Havasu City.

Two seats in the House are up for grabs.

Running for the District 3 Senate seat are state Rep.

Linda Binder, R-Lake Havasu City, and Democrat Jacquie Jessie, a former member of the Bullhead City City Council.

Binder has served in District 1, which has been reconfigured and renamed under the reapportionment plan approved by the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission.

The commission also reconfigured the 3rd Congressional District and renamed it the 2nd District.

Democrats running for the House seat are Linda Calvert of Glendale, Randy Camacho of Goodyear, Elizabeth Farley of Peoria and Sandy Reagan of Litchfield Park.

Republican candidates are Lisa Atkins of Litchfield Park; state Sen.

Scott Bundgaard, Trent Franks and Mike Schaefer, all of Glendale; Dick Hensley and John Keegan, both of Peoria; and Dusko Jovicic of Phoenix.

Keegan is a former Kingman resident and Schaefer formerly owned a motel in Kingman.

Libertarian Edward Carlson of Phoenix also filed for the seat.

The candidates for the congressional seat are vying to replace Atkins' former boss, Rep.

Bob Stump, who announced that he was not seeking re-election because of an undisclosed health problem.

The candidates' names will appear on the Sept.

10 primary ballots, and the top vote-getters will appear on the ballots in the Nov.

5 general election.
