Ballot Access News reports that “on the evening of August 3, the Alaskan Independence Party nominated Norm Olson for Lieutenant Governor, at a party committee meeting. However, the meeting did not choose a new gubernatorial nominee. Don Wright, a party stalwart for decades, had won the party’s gubernatorial primary and he is still the gubernatorial nominee.
However, the press has speculated that the party will replace Wright with someone more prominent, such as Bill Walker, who had lost the Republican gubernatorial primary earlier to the incumbent Republican Governor, Sean Parnell.”
In the meantime, the press continues to speculate that the Alaska Libertarian Party will run Republican primary loser incumbent US Senator Lisa Murkowski, even though the Libertarians have denied it and Murkowski has not expressed any interest, at least publicly.
