Josh Revak, the Republican who ran briefly for Alaska’s one congressional seat, but dropped out and supported Rep. Mary Peltola, was short-lived in her office. He is leaving to pursue other opportunities.
Revak, of south Anchorage, was named Peltola’s state director for the first few months, but has been marginalized by her increasingly partisan Democrat staff. News of his departure was not a surprise, as it had been rumored for months, and Revak himself has let it be known that he was out of the loop.
Peltola was elected in the general election of 2022 and her early staff had moderates on it, including Larry Persily and Alex Ortiz, who came into her office as chief of staff, as he had been for Congressman Don Young. None of the Republicans are left in Peltola’s office.
Peltola is bringing on Intimayo Harbison as her interim state director. He has been working as a special assistant to Peltola in her Anchorage office, under Revak.
