Gov. Bill Walker will run in the Democratic Primary this August, but he will remain an Independent, his campaign confirmed Friday.

“There was a lot of thought and preparation,” said Lindsay Hobson, Walker's campaign spokesperson. “We looked at all of our options and assessed this as a path to victory.”

Earlier this year, an order from the Alaska Supreme Court affirmed a Superior Court judge's decision in favor of the Alaska Democratic Party, which wanted to allow undeclared and non-partisan candidates to run in Democratic primaries. The Division of Elections initially denied the request in 2016.
