Based off two days of returns it looks like Anchorage is on the cusp of being entirely in the control of the political left.

Former Anchorage Assemblywoman Suzanne LaFrance enjoys a sizable 4,907 vote lead over conservative incumbent Mayor Dave Bronson.

The first two days of counting show 27,404 votes for Bronson and 32,311 for LaFrance, who is part of the leftist movement that has taken a firm hold over the school board, city council and now the mayor’s office.

With nearly 60,000 votes counted so far, LaFrance has a 8% lead. Another 7,600 votes have been received by the election center, but not yet tabulated by the city’s Dominion voting machines. This is due to rejected ballots, ballots which were rerun through the sorter, and voided ballot envelopes when a voter requests a replacement.

Regular updates of vote totals will be posted on the city website over the next two weeks as mail-in ballots trickle in. On May 29, the Election Commission will meet in a public session to review challenged ballots and the Anchorage Assembly is scheduled to certify the final results on May 31 during a special Assembly meeting.

    Were the Dominion Machines in use? In his podcast “”Dominion Fraud” Wolves and Finance” the narrator who is an economist proves with their own evidence that Dominion is easily tampered with. Even Serbia voted in one of the state elections. Alaska is noted in the podcast to get special treatment.and a target. Watch the podcast and call “Foul.” The leftists have to cheat. They cannot make it on a level or equal playing field. We are praying for all of you down there. Foreign billionaires are financing these elections. Pray for all of us and push back, Anchorage citizens. We are with Bronson all the way. Do not let him be disheartened.

  • Watchful Observer says:

    With all leftists in control, there will be no one else to blame but themselves when the conditions of this city get worse under their direction. The spotlight is on the dems fully now. If the assembly and the mayor actually work together and stop with the childish fighting, and we see improvements, then good. I for one will keep doing what I do to make Anchorage better under my own power and continue to lead by example.
    Either way, enjoy the show!

    Maybe check your vote-count math? Maybe just a typo?

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    ANCHORAGE you get what you deserve. If you did not vote you have no right to complain. So please be quiet, the new Queen is in charge now. You will speak when you are told.

  • Sue Hayden says:

    I don’t know how anyone is surprised at the LaFrance landslide. Bronson and those he supported have lost almost every election by a large margin since the Bronson squeaked by on. It’s time for the Save Anchorage and Alaska Watchman crowd to give it up.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Lol Sue, in the end God Almighty wins. This may be an event to open up more peoples eyes. No matter what happens, in the end God Almighty wins.

      Psalm 146:3-5
      King James Version
      3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

      4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

      5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God

      Don’t give up hope! There Are other battlefields on which to engage!

  • Dee Cee says:

    Anchorage will turn into Seattle before the end of the new administration. Tax payers: the ground has been laid!

  • Becky says:

    Wohoo! So great that Alaska is rejecting the hateful and deceitful Republican agenda. True Alaskans support equality and inclusion and the protection of everyones rights, not just white straight christian males.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Speak for yourself Becky. You and your group are such a small number that you should hardly even be noticed; but, ALAS, the squeaky wheel gets the grease every time. So sorry that you have been brain-washed to believe as you do.

      • TrueIndependent says:

        funny coming from the side who touts themselves as the ‘silent majority’, you’ve been losers since 2018 and that’s a big thanks to trump 😀

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        TI, who said I belonged to the “silent majority?” Seems I have been pretty vocal for quite a while here.

    • Akdale says:

      please define “true Alaskan”.

    • jon says:

      Absolutely right, Becky. The far right is already rewriting history. They are putting lies in our history books. They want to limit what children learn about them selves and the world.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Lol You have learned well grasshopper jon to recite your lines as your master has instructed you to do. You say exactly what the evil side is doing and is blaming the conservatives for doing. We know what you are doing and what the truth is.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    SO…IF this election had taken place in the Mat-Su Borough, the results would have been available NO LATER than today, 5-15-2024. Sadly, the democrats are probably busy making up ballots to ensure Lafrance’s win.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Is Lafrance, if she gets in to office, going to push to install the 15-minute cities or the SMART cities under her reign? As I stated before, it looks like Anchorage/Eagle River (and the valley!) are already being shaped into these 15-minute cities. Just take a look at the amenities within walking distance of an area.

  • Akdale says:

    Abandon ship! To all you conservatives, plan your exit. You lost. Let it sink. let the baby killing, reprobates have thier perceived utopia as disease, crime, poverty and all social ills associated with unbridled liberalism increase. Let them stew in the results of thier choices. why subject yourself and your children to it with them? Your first priority is your family, act on that.

  • Joan Bowden says:

    It’s time to face reality. Hard right conservatism is no longer an option. Never before has an incumbent mayor lost in a landslide and almost everyone he has supported has been soundly fefeated. Kathy Henslee, Leigh Sloan and Stephanie Taylor (twice?) were all fantastic candidates… intelligent, personable, attractive women who were tainted by Bronson’s support.

  • Mary says:

    “Dominion” Well that says it all. Don’t even need to count with Dominion use! The outcome is a foregone conclusion.

  • jon says:

    Dominion proved the machines were working just fine. That’s how they won against Rudy G.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      jon, please list your references for this information that you are sharing. I’d like to see where Dominion won their lawsuit against Giuliani. Show the proof or it ain’t true.

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    Go to the podcast Wolves and Finance and click on the wolf two times and find the video “Dominion Voting Machine Fraud” Economist Di Greggorio used Dominion’s own testimony to prove the machines can be easily accessed. You can even use your pen pushing on the back to change numbers and delete. The podcast gives special mention of Alaska’s modems being in use. This election needs to be challenged and our governor Dunleavy needs to order the removal of the Dominion machines and an apology to the citizens for being tricked into the “investment.” The “woke” crowd has no morals and will cheat as needed and pretend they really won. You will recognize them because they are haters.

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      This wish for dunceleavy to enforce law, stand tall, get a pair, be a man, lead, etc is so damn disgusting and disturbing! He won’t! He can’t! He’s a withering fool! Best thing we all can do is tell him exactly what he is!
