HOUSE MAJORITY CAUCUS CONTACT: Mike Mason (907) 444-0889 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE November 10, 2016 ; New House Majority Caucus Announces Committee Chairs for the…
The 2016 election has come and gone. We explore who come out of the contest better and worse than before election day.
In the wake of an announcement from 22 newly elected state house members, mostly Democrats, that they had come together to form a new majority organization, the Alaska Republican Party released a statement including a threat from Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock to three Republicans who joined the group that the party would actively try to unseat them.
A lawsuit organized by former Alaska Republican Party Chairman Randy Ruedrich to challenge campaign donation limits in political campaigns governed by the State of Alaska has failed.
Make no mistake, election day on Tuesday will decide control of Alaskaâ€™s state house.
The Alaska Division of Elections (DoE) put out a new batch of absentee and early voting statistics today and it shows some interesting trends.
In June, we looked at how Democrats could wrest power from Republicans in the State Senate, or at least create a bipartisan coalition.
The short version of that story is that, yes, there is a potential path for Democrats to have a role in senate leadership. It requires them winning at least two seats currently held by Republicans and getting at least three more to jump ship and organize with them, letâ€™s not pretend it is the most likely of scenarios. But it is plausible.
Candidates for state office had until midnight last night to file their last major financial disclosure (7 Day Reports) with the Alaska Public Offices Commission before the election on Tuesday. These reports detail all donations made to campaigns during a three-week span between the end of the 30 Day Report period on October 8 and the 7 Day Report period ending on October 29.
If you ask anyone involved in campaigns which races they think are in play, you are only going to get a version of the truth…
A fair warning, we are about to examine some really, really early absentee ballot return numbers in Alaska. Political analysts on both sides of the aisle have warned us about taking too much from them and so we pass that caution on to you. However, if you are like us, you just need to know what those numbers say anyway, right?
