Nevada Appeal: Independent American Party Activist John Wagner Dies at 83
The following was originally published in the Nevada Appeal.
Veteran Independent American Party activist John Wagner recently died of a heart attack.
Wagner, of Carson City, was one of the driving forces behind the IAP for more than a decade. He chaired the party for nearly eight years and was a candidate for office himself in several election cycles including this year.
His daughter Kim Cantacessi said he went into the hospital for surgery but developed an infection that required a second surgery. She said that resulted in two heart attacks that eventually took his life.
