New election results could change control of Alaska House

A key race in Fairbanks could flip leadership of the Alaska House after new results this week from the Division of Elections show Democrat Kathryn Dodge now leading Republican Bart LeBon by 10 votes.

LeBon was part of a narrow, 21-member Republican Majority which declared victory in the House less than 24 hours after polls closed on Nov. 6.

In order to take control of the House, a coalition of lawmakers, known as a caucus, must have at least 21 members. If LeBon loses his race, it would drop the newly announced caucus' numbers down to 20 -- leaving room for a new coalition to emerge among remaining House representatives.
