This morning Democrat congressional candidate Steve Lindbeck released details of his first fundraising quarter and it looks like an impressive haul.
In the last 3 days, Democrat congressional candidate Steve Lindbeck has turned to Alaskaâ€™s highest profile Democrat Mark Begich and the stateâ€™s progressive golden boy Forrest Dunbar in separate emails to ask for cash.
GOP intra-office memos, Chenault may be out, and Johnson may move up….Its Friday in the Sun!!!
The Midnight Sun has learned that one potential challenger to Congressman Don Young has begun hiring campaign staff and an official announcement of his candidacy is imminent.
To the average citizen this is a day to perform that most hallowed of democratic traditions, the trek to the polling place. For many campaign veterans and activists this is a day to throw on a few extra layers, round up volunteers, and hit the street corners to wave signs for your favorite candidate and then hit the bar for a few drinks as results roll in..
For us at The Midnight Sun this is a day to dig into the numbers, dust off the Ouija Board, and make a few predictions on the results that weâ€™re sure to get terribly wrong.
Are you searching for the place to see and be seen on election night in Anchorage? Here is a quick rundown of the election night events happening around the city.
Yesterday we posted the list of candidates for Anchorage municipal offices endorsed by the socially conservative Alaska Family Council. In fairness, we thought weâ€™d post the recently released endorsements for the LGBT rights group Alaskans Together For Equality.
It is one week from election day in the Municipality of Anchorage and what I know is Terre Gales is going to lose and lose badly to Forrest Dunbar.
Frankly that is a shame. It shouldnâ€™t have been, and didnâ€™t need to be that way.
One Anchorage firefighterâ€™s union is getting into the Anchorage municipal elections in a big way. The International Association of Fire Fighters – Local 1264 PAC has purchased $30,000 worth of ads on local radio stations to support assembly candidates Forrest Dunbar, Eric Croft, and John Weddleton.
The latest round of campaign finance disclosures are out, and they matter. A lot. Candidates, parties, and flacks are all full oâ€™ bluster and spin about their campaigns and their performance, but pesky statutorily-required campaign finance reports give citizens an unspun window into exactly where things stand. No one can hide from the numbers. They are cold, precise, and ultimately unflinching. To paraphrase the great football coach Bill Parcells, you are what your fundraising numbers say you are.
