Alaska Democratic Party Statement on the 2022 General Election Results
The Alaska Democratic Party (ADP) is thrilled with the final election results released today by the Division of Elections, including the re-election of Congresswoman Mary Peltola to the U.S. House of Representatives, two Democratic pickups in the state Senate and the unseating of two incumbents in the state House.
ADP supported a record number of candidates up and down the ticket this election cycle in its Coordinated Campaign through training, data, and staff consultations to bolster each campaign’s efficiency and effectiveness. Thirty-nine candidates, including more than ten first-time candidates, participated in the ADP Coordinated Campaign. The Party also made significant investments in candidate recruitment, voter education, turnout, and several key races, including House District 13, House District 21, House District 31, Senate District H, Senate District P, and the U.S. House.
“Democratic candidates have always outworked their Republican opponents to earn each and every vote, and this cycle was no exception. They directly engaged voters and represent Alaskans who want families, educators, workers, veterans, and young people to stay in our state and thrive,” said ADP Executive Director Lindsay Kavanaugh. “The results demonstrate that Democratic candidates who work hard and don’t shy away from voters or their values can win in Alaska, and should win, especially under a fair and equitable Proclamation Map that provides for appropriate representation.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of the hardworking candidates who stepped up to run this year or of campaign staff and the countless volunteers who, with integrity and great enthusiasm, helped achieve our mission of electing Alaska Democrats up and down the ballot,” said ADP Chair Michael Wenstrup. “In each election, the Alaska Democratic Party has been there every step of the way, and we’re going to be here every day fighting hard to elect Democrats at all levels of government next year and in the years to come.”
