    Leftist candidates eke out wins in sharply divided Anchorage – mayoral race heads to runoff

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    With vote counting now over, the Anchorage’s far left can breathe a sigh of relief after narrowly winning all four school board races and retaining arguably the most radical assemblyman the city has ever seen.

    A total of 75,365 Anchorage resident voted in the April election. That’s nearly 32% of eligible voters.

    The silver lining for conservatives is that the top political post is still up for grabs. Conservative Dave Bronson will attempt to defeat far left candidate Forrest Dunbar in a May 11 runoff since neither man was able to capture at least 45% of the overall vote. A Bronson win may provide some balance to the hard left tilt the city has taken.

    In most races, multiple conservative candidates have divided up the vote and handed victory to opponents who were supported by Planned Parenthood and other liberal activist groups.

    Here’s how the final tally looks for the top vote getters.

        “dominion voting machines debunked”

        You keep spreading lies either on purpose or by accident

        But it’s embarrassing for you

        • What’s embarrassing is that you believe everything you see on tv and everything you read on communist controlled internet platforms. It was never debunked. There is hard evidence from MIT computer techs that have shown that the Chinese made software flipped votes but you idiots will ignore that because it doesn’t fit your communist narrative. Now go back to your corner. Better yet show us all the website where you found this info. I bet it wasn’t a .gov site. Nope. Probably CNN or msnbc. Prove me wrong!

    1. From what I have been seeing, Anchorage is an extension of Commiefornia now.. And, it’s affecting the Matsu valley.. Not everyone fleeing the snakes pit are leftists, but some are.

    2. Conservative candidates needs to have gentlemen agreements about who should run so we stop defeating ourselves at the polls. We can’t fight a war on two fronts; with the Left and their insanity as well as our own personality spectrum. Vote for the winner!

    3. I fled Anchorage just in time it seems. Y’all are gonna be locked down again and again, some form of masks and other covid bullsh*t forever. I’m in a free, open, maskless state now, couldn’t be happier.

      If you aren’t willing to fix your voting systems, by force if necessary, then Anchorage deserves to rot.
