Carmela Warfield, currently an officer in the Alaska Republican Party as its Region 5 representative, has announced her intention to seek to lead the party when it elects a new chairperson at its statewide convention in Anchorage, April 19-21.
She already has the endorsement of the Mat-Su Republican Women’s Club, the Valley Republican Women of Alaska, the Anchorage Young Republicans, and Mat-Su Young Republicans, as well as many personal endorsements from around the state from those who will be attending the convention.
Warfield said, “In this critical time, we must strive to be, as President Reagan said, the shining city upon the hill. Our Party must be well-organized, professional, knowledgeable, and well-funded. Through our efforts, we will serve as an example to our communities and our fellow Republicans.”
Warfield has served in her Hillside Community Council in Anchorage and briefly filed a letter of intent to run for Anchorage Assembly in 2023, but withdrew.
Already announced for Alaska Republican Party chair is Nikki Rose and Mike Robbins, both of Anchorage.
The Alaska Republican Party has over 143,000 registered voters in what is is the largest political organization in the state.
