Two more Democratic candidates for Alaska Senate were posted late to the official primary election list of the Alaska Division of Elections.
The two, Mikse Willoya-Marx, in Senate District E (Wasilla), and Robert Henrichs, Senate District P (Coastal), show that Democrats are contesting 13 of 14 Senate seats up for election in 2014. Republicans are contesting 11 seats.
Willoya-Marx will face incumbent Mike Dunleavy, R-Wasilla, in November. Henrichs, from Cordova, is challenging incumbent Gary Stevens, R-Kodiak.
The state primary list published online Tuesday showed no new House candidates were added since Monday evening. The filing deadline was 5 p.m. Monday.
Of the 40 House seats up for election, Democrats have filed in 36 and Republicans in 31.
Independents and third-party hopefuls are listed for two Senate and seven House seats, in some cases counting as the only opposition to the major-party candidate for that spot.
