After three Republicans joined Democrats and Independents to form a bi-partisan coalition in Juneau, the Alaska Republican Party has approved a rule change to kick them out of the party's primary. 

The Alaska GOP says it has new authority, based on a decision made by a Superior Court judge earlier this year, in a case involving the Alaska Democratic Party.

In October, the Alaska Democratic Party won a lawsuit against the state challenging a law that requires primary election candidates be registered members of the corresponding party. The move would allow independents, like Gov. Bill Walker, to run on the Democratic ticket.
