The latest APOC reports are out for Anchorage’s spring elections and they give us pretty good clues about who’s contending, who’s pretending, who’s hoping to get paid, and who’s putting their members’ money where their mouths are.
This weekend a robocall saying it was paid for by the Alaska Republican Party encouraged voters who had requested an absentee ballot application for the April 5th municipal election to vote for a host of candidates depending on where they lived. Among those who the Party did not include in their list of endorsed candidates were registered Republican candidates Assemblywoman Amy Demboski and school board candidate David Nees
One campaign appears to be coalescing into the â€œestablishmentâ€ Republican choice.
If the race dynamics remain as they are today, and I wouldnâ€™t bet the house on it, Weddleton receives all left of center support, Schimscheimer plays for the pro-business crowd, Taylor is the social conservative candidate, and Bunde casts herself as the fiscal conservative.
Who is Mark Schimscheimer, where is Tony Hopfinger, when will we see LGBT rights repealers, and how will legislators find a way out of voting for new revenues? Its Friday in the Sun!!!!!
