Kyle Johansen (b. July 13, 1967) is currently a Republican member of the Alaska House of Representatives, representing the 1st District since 2007. He is seeking re-election as an Independent in 2012.

Johansen initially filed for re-election in District 33 as a Republican, but ultimately he decided to instead run as an Independent.[3] Johansen says he will better serve the voters by running as an Independent. "Frankly, I'm just kind of disheartened by party politics in general. A lot of it is personality-driven and I'm focusing on issues and moving this district forward and the state forward in all the things that we deal with," Johansen said.[4] The Primary election takes place on August 28, 2012 and the general election is on November 6, 2012.

2011 recall

An effort was launched in February 2011 to recall Johansen from office based on events surrounding a Republican state house caucus meeting in November 2010, at which time Johansen resigned a leadership position in the caucus and walked out.[5]
