Listicle: Keep track of the new Alaska Senate seats and House districts here

It’s all over but the shouting as far as the new political districts in Alaska go.

With the Redistricting process in the rear-view mirror and the political boundaries now redrawn and likely to survive a Supreme Court review, here is the current line-up for state Senate seats and their corresponding House seats, with the incumbents listed (except for open seats), and current known challengers.

  1. And most of all let the oath breakers know GOD is keeping track here also. To all oath takers your contact is with GOD for the citizens, not the cameras not your bank accounts not for Jesus or the citizens between the oath taker and GOD so help you GOD you swore. So before you wake up in a hot place knowing you deserve it. Stop turn back towards GOD oath breakers.

  2. >House District 7 – Rep. Ron Gillham – R., challenger Justin Ruffridge – R.

    Those of you in District 7 — DO NOT vote for Ruffridge. He’s a pharmacist in Soldotna (also on the state board of Pharmacy) who has been doing everything in his power to deny access to early COVID treatments.

    • (Replying to James) … After seeing Ruffridge quoted in the Peninsula Clarion a few months ago, I contacted him and asked him to back up his contention that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was ineffective against Covid-19. Based on the study he provided me, it was obvious he had never given HCQ a serious look. I pointed out to Ruffridge that not only did his HCQ study fail to include the all-important zinc in its treatment regimen, but also the study was done using already hospitalized patients, instead of early-onset patients. (HCQ is similar to the Covid-19 vaccines in this aspect: they are both ineffective when given to patients so ill that they have to be hospitalized.) I asked if he could provide me with an HCQ study of early-onset Covid-19 patients that included zinc. He never responded. What I learned from my Justin Ruffridge experience: the young lad is arrogant, authoritarian, dismissive, lazy, and when it comes to HCQ, he seems to be quite ignorant.

  3. House 34. Hopkins has 2 challengers. This will be ranked choice voting, correct? I know Frank and will be voting for him. Who is the other guy? Could Dems be “planting” supposedly republican candidates to draw votes away from the stronger republican candidate?
