Alyse Galvin wins Alaska's Democratic nomination for U.S. House

 Associated Press / KTUU Staff — AUGUST 21, 2018

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) — Alyse Galvin has won Alaska's Democratic primary for the U.S. House, becoming the first independent to represent the party in a general election.

Galvin defeated Democrats Dimitri Shein and Carol Hafner and independent Christopher Cumings in Tuesday's primary.

At a watch party Tuesday night, Galvin told KTUU she is looking forward to the challenge of taking on Rep. Don Young directly in the November general election.

"People who have never had anything to do with politics are volunteering. Now we’re at 700 volunteers, and the way that happened is they are looking for something completely different, and I represent that," Galvin said. "I do not represent the same old, same old politician. He may be charming, but unfortunately, he's in the pockets of too many people."
