DISTRICT 31 SAYS HE CAN’T RUN ON THEIR PRIMARY BALLOT
Lower Peninsula Republicans — from Soldotna to Homer — penned an open letter from District 31 explaining why they no longer believe Rep. Paul Seaton can claim to be a Republican, and why they are moving to kick him off the Republican primary ballot this year.
The Alaska Republican Party has taken similar measures. Seaton and his fellow “Musk Oxen” House members, Gabrielle LeDoux and Louise Stutues , are not entitled to financial support from the party or any of its affiliates. The party has also asked the State Division of Elections to drop them from the Republican primary ballot. Under Democrat Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott, the division has so far rejected that request.
The District 31 letter was released today and included an attachment outlining some of Seaton’s more egregious betrayals to the Republicans who advanced him to the General Election ballot in 2016, where he faced no Democrat opponent.
