Alaska Family Action, a leading pro-life and pro-family organization that advocates for traditional values in the public square, has released it’s endorsement guide for the Nov. 8 midterms.

The guide places candidates into three categories. The highest rating is “Endorsed,” which means the candidate has a conservative voting record or survey results and a personally verified conservative background with a “very high likelihood” of governing as a conservative. The second highest rating is “Ally,” which indicates that there are two or more candidates who meet “all or most” of the endorsement standards. All these candidates are considered acceptable conservatives. The third rating is, “Preferred,” which means the candidate is “more conservative or more competent than other candidates running in the same race.”

For U.S. Senate, the guide gives Kelly Tshibaka the highest “endorsed” ranking in her bid to unseat Sen. Lisa Murkowski. In the U.S. House race, both Republican candidates Sarah Palin and Nick Begich received an “Ally” rating, as did Gov. Mike Dunleavy and his challenger Charlie Pierce in the gubernatorial race.

A total of 54 state legislators running for various State House and Senate seats were also listed in the endorsement guide. Click here for details.
