Alaska Republican Party

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Alaska Republican Party is the affiliate of the United States Republican Party (GOP) in Alaska, headquartered in Anchorage.[1]

It is the dominant or majority party in Alaska. As of 2015, Republicans hold both of Alaska's seats in the United States Senate, and Alaska's single seat in the United States House of Representatives. They also hold majorities in both houses of the state legislature.

The Alaska Republican Party has also greatly helped GOP presidential candidates in the state and has transformed the Last Frontier into one of the most staunchly Republican states in the nation. For instance, Republican John McCain won Alaska in 2008 with 59.42% of the total statewide vote over Democrat Barack Obama who received 37.89%, a 21.53-percent margin of victory for the senior U.S. Senator from Arizona.[2] All Republican presidential nominees have won Alaska in recent elections; the last (and only) Democrat to carry Alaska was Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.[3]


John Henry Kinkead was the first Governor of the District of Alaska (1884 to 1885).

The Alaska Republican Party originates from Alaska's first district governor. Once Alaska was granted the status of United States District civilian leadership could be appointed by the current president of the United States. President Chester A. Arthur appointed Alaska's first territorial governor. He was a Republican named John Henry Kinkead.[4]

Alaska Republicans as a party organization can trace their origin to Alaska's first legislature in 1913.[5]
