At the Alaska Democratic primary last month, the winners for both the U.S. Senate seat, and the U.S. House seat, are registered independents. Al Gross is running for U.S. Senate, and Alysse Galvin for U.S. House.
For both of them, there will be a “U” after their names, in parentheses. Then, to the right of each of their names, will be the words “Alaska Democratic Party nominee.” “U” is the Alaska abbreviation for “independent”; it stands for “unaffiliated.”
If either is elected, each will decide whether to be listed in the Congressional Directory as “Democratic” or “independent.” It is thought that Galvin has a moderate likelihood of winning her election.
