Ron Gillham

Former Alaska House Rep. Ron Gillham, a Republican, is challenging the man who beat him in 2022 — Justin Ruffridge, for the House seat representing Soldotna, District 7.

Gillham, a North Slope crane operator and construction superintendent, first ran in 2020 against then-Rep. Gary Knopp, a liberal Republican who was not endorsed by the Republican Party and who died while piloting his small airplane that year.

In 2022, Ruffridge, a pharmacist, jumped in to challenge Gillham from the political left and won the seat by 83 votes.
