The elections are finally over, although in Alaska, there is still uncertainty over the U.S. Senate and Gubernatorial race outcomes. Those race results will not be clear until more than 20,000 early, absentee and questioned ballots are counted next week. However, currently, former Natural Resources commissioner Dan Sullivan is in the lead in the U.S. Senate race and unaffiliated candidate Bill Walker has more votes than incumbent Sean Parnell for Governor.
