Alaska Primary Filing Closes; Independent Governor Bill Walker Does Not File to run in Democratic Primary

Ballot Access News

On June 1, filing closed for candidates running in any Alaska primaries. Former Democratic U.S. Senator Mark Begich filed to run for Governor in the Democratic primary. As a result, incumbent Governor Bill Walker, an independent, did not file in the Democratic primary. Presumably he will petition as an independent candidate again, as he did in 2014. Here is the entire Alaska primary candidate filing list for all federal and state office.
Lynette Clark filed to run for Governor in the Alaskan Independence Party primary. No one else filed for that party’s nomination for Governor, so she will be on the November ballot as the Alaskan Independence nominee.
Billy Toien filed to run for Governor in the Libertarian primary.
