ANCHORAGE - Not even a day had passed since Alaska's primary and already campaign barbs were being flung Wednesday between Republican Gov. Sean Parnell and the Democrat who wants to replace him, Ethan Berkowitz.
In Tuesday night's primary races, Juneau residents showed a stark contrast to the rest of the state, giving a huge margin of victory to incumbent Gov. Sean Parnell, and giving a strong show of support for fellow Southeast Alaska native Lisa Murkowski.
Sponsors of an initiative to tax the leaseholders of the state's natural gas reserves want the Alaska Public Offices Commission to force an opposing group to disclose where its money is coming from.
One of the things Alaska voters proved last month is that money isn't always everything in an election. The biggest spenders in the Republican gubernatorial primary didn't win.
