Raving Conservative


Thursday, April 13, 2006


It turns out I must wait until the next election to run for governor of Alaska. The Division of Election sdid not catch this, but a review of the Alaska State Constitution reveled that any resident must be a resident for at least 7 years before being eligible to serve as Governore. I have been in Alaska half that time.

I have folded my campaign, not too big a chore since it was only just getting started, and filed my contacts for next time. I'm not sure which position I shall run for next. In the next three years there is a Congressional seat, Senate seat, Mayoral elction, and another Governor's election. All positions I have mention are state, not national seats. Which one I go for is to be determined enitirely by who is erving where at the time. At this time I am inclined to go for Mayor, but everything else is still an option.

The supporters I had already drummed up were dissappointed, maybe even more dissappointed than I am. There is so much to do, so mych good to do for the state. I will try again later.


  • do mayor, then governor. statistically, gov's do better in the presidential races, probably because they're not so "Washington".

  • I agree with libby. The experience with the executive branch at the state level would be more useful. Moving from the legislative to the executive is a pretty tough road, generally.

  • Bummer, dude.
    Mayor is a good start, though...

  • I'd say go for mayor. Lookee what you can do if you have a mayor's office....

  • Well, Alaska's loss is our gain, right?

  • Sorry it didn't work out, Daniel. But I think it would definitely be better if you were to start small and then work up. Better chances there. Good luck with your political career!

  • Go for State House. There's no one running. You're a shoe-in.
