Love the name, the AFU Party. The Alaskan Fascist Unity ticket. The Communists are pushing hard to conquer the state again. Hopefully some Democrats will step up and demand the party field an actual ticket instead of this dubious farce.
Yup, totally disrespectful to the actual voters who voted in their primary.
This is also partly Lisa Murkowski’s fault, she showed them that you can push everyone’s votes to the side in a primary and only their own way forward counts.
Bizarre move of questionable legality (the part about replacing Walker’s running mate with Mallot, Mallot and his running mate are free to drop out). Shades of the 1872 POTUS election, where the rats endorsed the Liberal Republican third party candidacy of Horace Greeley. Grant beat him in a landslide.
Reportedly the AFL-CIO masterminded this. The rat gubernatorial nominee, Mallot, was reluctant but polls showed the ex-RINO Walker would be competitive 1-on-1 with Parnell and he (Mallot) would not be. A Walker interal poll showed him up 43%-40%. Parnell should win anyway.
One article calls the desultory rat and the ex-RINO a “political odd couple”, more like birds of a feather. This RAT/RINO fusion is not new for the state, a Rat/RINO coalition ruled the state Senate until GOP gains and the primary defeats of several traitors in 2012.
In other Alaska news, rat Senator Begich is under fire for running a controversial ad.
