DescriptionAn openly gay Navajo man bested his opponents in a three-way primary race for an Arizona state Senate seat.

Jack Jackson, Jr., has had a long career of both public and tribal service. While serving in the Arizona House, he served on the Appropriations Committee and the Ways and Means Committee and worked to pass Senate Bill 1225-a measure to ban anti-gay workplace discrimination in Arizona.
