Jesse Sumner files for House, challenging David Eastman

Mat-Su Borough Assemblyman Jesse Sumner has filed a letter of intent to run for House as a Republican primary challenger to incumbent David Eastman.

Sumner, lifelong Valley resident, was elected to the Assembly in 2018. He’s a contractor who earned a degree in physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the owner of Sumner Company Homes, and is a general contractor. He is on record in support of a full Permanent Fund dividend and a constitutional spending cap.

Eastman was first elected to the District 10 seat in 2016 after challenging Rep. Wes Keller in the primary, and was unopposed in 2018, making this his first primary challenge.

  • David has done a great job staying committed to Conservative principles. Wasilla would be making a mistake by changing horses.

  • Why would he challenge the most conservative principled legislator we have?

    • Eastman can’t get anything done. There’s no point to his obstructionist methods if they are completely ineffective.

      • Or he could just become another sellout, is that your contention? Conservative voter my ___!

  • Looks like the suits may get a run for their money next election…

  • Anyone educated in California cannot possibly be a Republican. David Eastman gets my vote, again.

    • Eastman was raised in California

      • At least David has a proven voting record, so we have a pretty good idea on how he will vote on issues that matter to conservatives.

        All that I could find about Jesse Sumner’s voting record is that he voted against waiving landfill fees temporarily, right after the earthquake.

    • Check your facts.

  • Any update on a campaign website and fundraising link? Thanks.
