Absentee ballots have obliterated Anchorage Rep. Lance Pruitt’s once solid lead over hard-left Democrat Liz Snyder. A Pruitt loss in District 27 would shrink the Republican majority in the State House to a razor thin 21-19 advantage. During the last Legislative session Republicans had 23 members.
The latest results released on Sunday by the Alaska Division of Elections showed Snyder with 4,572 votes to Pruitt’s 4,555, a difference of just 17 votes with 114 left to tally.
Snyder is a hard-left Democrat who was endorsed by Planned Parenthood. She supports the abortion giant’s explicit sex education agenda in schools as well as the group’s abortion advocacy. They opposed Lance Pruitt because he does not believe Planned Parenthood activists should be able to infiltrate public schools with their hyper-sexualized material and abortion propaganda.
As of Sunday night, Ballot Measure 2, which would fundamentally change Alaska’s election system, was leading by 3,216 votes with 7,470 ballots left to count statewide.
