Alaska Republican Party Will Ask Elections Division to Bar Three Incumbent Republican Legislators from Filing for Re-Election in Republican Primary

On December 2, the Alaska Republican State Committee voted to ask the Elections Division to bar three incumbent Republican state house members from filing in the 2018 Republican primary. The three incumbents voted in early 2017 to organize the House under Democratic control. See this story. Thanks to Ray Metcalfe for the link.

  1. It is interesting that the basis for the request is the recent decision of an Alaska Court that the Democrats could let independents run for nomination in their primaries.

    Alaska should do away with partisan primaries and all the shenanigans that have been associated with them in Alaska and switch to Top 2.

  2. In the last gubernatorial election in Alaska, the Top 2 candidates were Republican (one changed their registration after they had qualified for general election). The Democrats did not even have a candidate.

    In the last senatorial election, the Democrat finished fourth behind a Republican, a Libertarian, and an independent.

  3. Jim,

    I think your comments may be a little confusing regarding the official party affiliation for the candidates.

    I believe the full story in AK for the gubernatorial race was that the Dem Walker changed his registration from Dem to Independent so that he and the formerly Rep candidate Mallot (who also changed to Independent) would be in an alliance ticket for Gov and Lt Gov against the true primary successful Rep candidate Parnell.

  4. This is is one more insane mess (with MAJOR tyrant overtones) due to the SCOTUS MORONS —

    unable to detect that there are PUBLIC nominations for PUBLIC offices by PUBLIC Electors-Voters via PUBLIC L-A-W-S. See the MORON stuff in the 2000 CA Dems case.

    IE — ALL or SOME (aka FACTION/fraction) Electors nominate via LAWS.

    The HACK faction parties (with their EVIL corrupt monarch/oligarch top hacks) are NOT independent dictatorship empires — regarding ANY PUBLIC actions — esp. PUBLIC elections.

    As a bunch of clubby hacks they can be like any other PRIVATE clubby group — the *association* stuff.
    —-
    NO primaries, caucuses and conventions.

    PR and AppV

  5. @Brad M,

    Republican Bill Walker qualified as an independent candidate for governor. Byron Mallot won the Democratic primary for governor. Mallot and the Democratic lieutenant-gubernatorial candidate withdrew from the race so that Mallot could become the lieutenant-gubernatorial candidate for Walker, Mallot required that Walker disenroll from the Republican Party, while Mallot remained a Democrat. The Democrats failed to name a replacement candidate, betraying any Republicans and Libertarians who had supported him in the blanket primary.
