Dunleavy outpolls Walker almost 2-1 in primary election
August 24, 2022
Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy received nearly twice as many votes as his nearest rival in last week’s primary election for governor.
The incumbent received 64,676 votes as of Aug, 17 to 34,248 for former Gov. Bill Walker, running as an independent, and 33,974 for former Anchorage Rep. Les Gara, running as a Democrat.
Dunleavy won by an even larger margin in Wrangell, where his 256 votes in the Aug. 16 primary far exceeded the combined total of Walker, 126, and Gara, 63.
It was the opposite 30 miles away in Petersburg, where Walker outpolled Dunleavy, 273-225.
