Alaska’s two leading U.S. Senate candidates on Thursday night met for the last time before Election Day in a policy-focused debate on the state’s public broadcasting network.
Rep. Don Young criticized Democratic challenger Forrest Dunbar on Thursday for bringing up House ethics violations in a televised debate for U.S. Congress, arguing that he was found not guilty because he only received a letter of reproval, not a sanction.
Politicians’ claims of unique powers to unlock the refuge to oil development -- and criticisms of opponents for failing to accomplish that elusive goal -- have been staples of Alaska campaign rhetoric for decades.
An Anchorage judge on Thursday ordered Gov. Sean Parnell to release hundreds of documents related to problems in the Alaska National Guard or explain why the documents can’t be released.
Gov. Sean Parnell said he responded right away when he first heard of trouble within the command structure of the Alaska National Guard. Challenger Bill Walker said Parnell responded by asking the very person he should have avoided — the guard's leader.
Complaints about the Alaska National Guard that were brought to the governor’s office always went straight to the top -- to the adjutant general -- according to a former aide to Gov. Sean Parnell.
State Rep. Lora Reinbold is on a mission to root out "Common Core," the new educational standards that have become a target of the tea party movement, from Alaska schools.
The Republican U.S. Senate candidate has tapped into the speeches of former President Bill Clinton for one of his favorite lines in his campaign against Sen. Mark Begich.
In a debate Wednesday, Gov. Sean Parnell and his challenger Bill Walker offered opposing views on where to cut from the state's budget in the face of dwindling revenue.
