Jane Campbell is a retired Navy captain and an unaffiliated candidate for NC House. She's also openly gay.
After learning her state representative was an architect of HB2 and running unopposed for reelection, she decided to do something about it.
If elected, Jane Campbell would be the only openly LGBTQ member of the NC House next year. Rep. Chris Sgro, a current openly LGBTQ lawmaker, was appointed to his seat and is not seeking election.
Former openly LGBTQ state lawmakers include Senator Julia Boseman and Representative Marcus Brandon.
