Incumbent Senator Mark Begich and challenger Dan Sullivan resume campaigning. The Division of Elections has revised the election returns. The oil-tax referendum was decided by less than five percent of the vote. What now? The Libertarian candidate for the Senate drops out – the party gets a new candidate. Striking Enstar workers return to the job, Cook Inlet oil production is up. The price of a barrel of North Slope crude is down. The Kodiak Rocket facility launches a rocket in a launch that lasts seconds.
The election returns are in. Alaskans say no to the oil-tax referendum but the outcome was in doubt for a while. Dan Sullivan wins the GOP Senate nomination – with Mead Treadwell finishing a distant third. What is Mead’s future? And what of second-place finisher Joe Miller? Sean Parnell, Bill Walker and Byron Mallott square off for governor – amidst calls for Walker and Mallott to join forces. Two GOP House incumbents lose primaries. Don Young is renominated once again. The Municipality of Anchorage has yet another plan for the troubled port.
Joe Miller and Mead Treadwell discussed foreign affairs, health policy, transportation, climate change, gun control, Social Security and how they wanted to help Alaska in the US Senate during a one-hour Debate for the State on Wednesday night.
