A group calling itself “Keep Dunleavy” has registered with the Alaska Public Offices Commission.
Chaired by Cynthia Henry, national committeewoman for the Alaska Republican Party, the stated mission of the new group is to oppose the recall of Gov. Mike Dunleavy.
A recall effort is underway and signatures are being gathered to put the question on a statewide ballot, either in a special election or an existing statewide election, such as the primary or general election. Dunleavy was elected in November of 2018, and the recall efforts began in February of 2019.
The matter still awaits a court hearing on March 25, but many observers say the Alaska Supreme Court will approve the question for the ballot, based on the justices’ political leanings.
