Former Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan won the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. He will run against incumbent Democrat Mark Begich who easily won renomination Tuesday. Sullivan took 40 percent of the vote, 8 points ahead of Fairbanks Attorney Joe Miller. Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell finished third with about 25 percent of the vote.
Dan Sullivan: 40.05%
Mead Treadwell: 24.91%
Joe Miller: 32.02%
Last year the Legislature narrowly passed Senate Bill 21, which offers tax cuts to encourage more drilling in the wake of declining oil production statewide. Today, Alaska voters have the opportunity to repeal the cuts laid out under SB 21. Those voting “yes” on Ballot Measure 1 are voting to repeal the cuts. Those voting “no” are electing to leave the tax reform as it stands under Senate Bill 21.
