Last month both the Alaska Republican Party and Alaska Democratic Party held their presidential caucuses. Both Republicans and Democrats require caucus participants to be registered members of their party.

This summer U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski joined forces with Michigan Congressman Fred Upton to form a lucrative campaign marriage known as a joint fundraising committee. Such committees are designed so two or more candidates can team up for fundraisers, split the costs, and then divide the donations. This is a common practice for congressional candidates across the country, however what is notable about the Murkowski-Upton Victory Committee is that instead of grouping candidates from the same state or geographic region the Murkowski-Upton partnership groups the candidates by economic interest.
