JUNEAU, Alaska: On August 19, four state executive primaries were held in Alaska to decide the nominees for governor and lieutenant governor.

Republican incumbent Gov. Sean Parnell handily defeated three challengers for his party's nomination. Meanwhile, former Yukatat and Juneau mayor Byron Mallott, who currently serves as the executive director of the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation, won the Alaskan Independence-Democratic-Libertarian (or "ADL") primary race for the right to face Parnell in November.[1]

The open seat race to replace outgoing Republican Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell also attracted a sufficient number of candidates to force Republican and ADL primaries. The contests ended with Republican Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan and Democratic state Sen. Hollis French emerging victorious from their respective fields.

All four state executive primary winners were nominated Tuesday by commanding majorities, ranging from 62 percent for French to 76 percent for Parnell, according to unofficial results provided by the State of Alaska Division of Elections. Their margins of victory were equally substantial, especially in Parnell's case. With 99 percent of precincts reporting as of Wednesday morning, a distance of nearly 60 percentage points separates Parnell from the next highest vote-getter, Russ Millette.[2]

Here are the unofficial vote totals from the August 19 gubernatorial and lieutenant gubernatorial primary contests, as well as a peak at the upcoming general election lineups:
