About this Item


  • Alaska Democratic Party


  • "The Alaska Democratic Party is the affiliate of the Democratic Party in the state of Alaska, headquartered in Anchorage. It is one of the two major parties in Alaska. At the federal level, Democrats hold no federal seats. At the state level Democrats hold 6 of the 20 seats in the State Senate and 17 of the 40 seats in the State House. Currently there are over 71,000 registered members of the Alaska Democratic Party. In the 2014 Election the Unity Ticket of Bill Walker and Byron Mallott defeated incumbent Governor Republican Sean Parnell and his running mate Dan Sullivan. U.S. Senator Mark Begich lost by 6,000 votes to Republican Dan Sullivan. U.S. Representative Republican Don Young defeated challenger Democrat Forrest Dunbar despite Young's series of missteps regarding comments he made about suicide. In the State Senate Democrats failed to keep the open seat vacated by former State Senator Hollis French and lost 1 seat in the State Senate reducing the number of Democrats in the State Senate to 6. In contrast to the State Senate, Democrats picked up 3 seats in the State House in districts 21 Matt Claman (West Anchorage), 5 Adam Wool (Fairbanks), and 36 Dan Ortiz (Ketchikan). In 2015 Former House Minority Leader Ethan Berkowitz made a late entry into the race for Mayor of Anchorage. Berkowitz received the most votes in the April 7th Anchorage Mayoral Election but failed to secure enough votes to avoid a runoff against Amy Demboski. In the May 5th runoff Election Ethan Berkowitz defeated Amy Demboski by more than 20%." -- Summary retrieved on October 7, 2019
