ARP response to Joe Miller as a Libertarian

Anchorage, Alaska – The Alaska Republican Party issued the following statement regarding Joe Miller filing for U.S. Senate as a Libertarian earlier today:

“Lisa Murkowski received more than 70 percent of the vote in the primary. She won our party’s nomination and the Alaska Republican Party will be completely dedicated to her re-election,” Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock said.

“We look forward to working with our Republican delegation, and feel that Alaska is best represented by Senators Murkowski, Dan Sullivan, and Representative Don Young as an effective, experienced, and well-respected team in Washington, looking out for Alaskans and our state’s interests each and every day.”

The Republican primary voters have spoken, said Rick Whitbeck, vice chair of the party: “Lisa Murkowski is our nominee for 2016. We look forward to working with the senator on her re-election bid and know she will continue to be part of a cohesive team in D.C. fighting for Alaska’s interests, economic prosperity and unique way of life.”

AK-GOP amazed that Democrats support illegal election


Sept. 1, 2016

Anchorage, Alaska – In response to a request by the Alaska Democratic Party to certify an illegal election in District 40, Alaska Republican Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock issued this statement:

“The Democratic machine in Anchorage has stooped to a new low by calling the primary a 'Democratic Primary.' It’s very clear that the ADL ballot is an open ballot, available for all voters to use if they so choose. That ballot is open to Republicans, Libertarians, and undeclared voters. That is what the Democrats publicly claim they want.

“The Division of Elections has admitted that voters in District 40 were allowed to vote two ballots in violation of Alaska law. The Republican ballot is a closed ballot, not available to members of other organized parties, but only to Republicans, nonpartisans, and undeclared voters.

Chairman Babcock sends letter to Elections director

Aug. 30, 2016

ANCHORAGE - Alaska Republican Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock today sent a letter of caution to Division of Elections Director Josie Bahnke regarding the uncertainty surrounding the voting in several parts of the state, but particularly in District 40. The letter is printed in its entirety here:

Dear Director Bahnke,

You have a momentous responsibility.  I realize that despite your best efforts, with limited budgets and more than 400 precincts, the job of making sure everyone is trained and prepared to properly conduct an election can be daunting. 

Your task and responsibility to review the legitimacy of the election is a very important one for all Alaskans.

Usually, your decisions are relatively straightforward.  The Primary election of 2016, unfortunately, was subject to some critical, illegal, mistakes.  These improprieties were made by numerous official precinct election clerks, but they were not your improper or illegal actions that you made personally. 

Now however, the buck stops with you.

Chairman Babcock: Results of primary are encouraging

Screen_Shot_2016-08-17_at_1.15.39_PM.pngAug. 17, 2016

SOLDOTNA - Alaska's primary results brought fresh energy to the Republican Party and point to a positive trend as voters turn to the general election in November.

"We Republicans are a team of independent-minded, scrappy candidates. The voters have stated their preferences in these contested primaries. This is very healthy for our party. We support all of the candidates who are moving forward to November and we're going to work very hard for them," Babcock said.

"I'm heartened to see Alaska voters chose the Republican ballot over the Democratic ballot by a nearly two to one margin," he said. "It means our message of growing our economy and reducing unnecessary government is getting through to the Alaskans who don't choose to be part of a party at this time. They do care about Alaska's future and we welcome their participation by choosing the Republican ballot."

Babcock said the party is in a celebratory mood today and will begin working on general election campaigns immediately. "We feel the wind in our sails," Babcock said. "There's no time like the present."
