Transgender Woman Posed To Win Primary

A Tucson woman is running for the Arizona House of Representatives and making history.

Amanda Simpson is head of advanced and special programs at Raytheon. KOLD News 13 introduced you to her three years ago, when she went public with her sex change. Now, Simpson is set to be the first transsexual in the
nation to win a primary.

Simpson doesn’t want her gender to take away from her plans for the future of Arizona. Her political platform includes improving education, dealing with Arizona’s explosive population growth, and affordable healthcare.
