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.
This morning the independent expenditure group Together for Alaska launched the first really hard-hitting radio ad of the general election season.
Now that all of the candidates for State House have filed we can take a look at which races will have the greatest impact on how the State House organizes its leadership for the next two-year session. Are we likely to see the continued reign of a Republican majority or do the Democrats have a chance of taking control?
