Republican incumbent Gov. Sean Parnell was first elected in 2010 and is seeking a second term in 2014. Parnell considered mounting a bid for Congress in the 2014 electoral cycle, but ultimately settled on running for re-election as governor.
Parnell announced his intention to pursue another term as Alaska's chief executive official in May 2013. By the following May, Parnell appeared to be in strong standing for re-election. A Public Policy Poll showed the incumbent leading three potential general election opponents by at least 10 points, meanwhile The Cook Political Report released another round of 2014 Governors Race Ratings and labeled the Alaska Governor's seat as "Solid Republican" under Parnell.
Parnell defeated three challengers, Gerald L. "Tap" Heikes, Russ Millette and Brad Snowden, to secure the party's re-nomination in the August 19 primary. The Democratic-Libertarian-Independence (or "ADL") primary ballot included Democrats Byron Mallott and Phil Stoddard, as well uncontested Libertarian nominee Carolyn "Care" Clift. Mallott received the highest number of votes in the ADL primary and will advance with Parnell and Clift to the general election, along with unaffiliated contender Bill Walker and J.R. Myers of the Alaska Constitution Party.
Republican, Democratic, Alaskan Independence and Libertarian Party candidates do not need to petition to appear on the ballot in Alaska. This year, Alaska Constitution Party Chairman J.R. Myers wants to add his party to the list, and become its first viable candidate for governor since the Alaska Constitution Party was established in 2010. Myers succeeded in submitting the required 3,017 valid petition signatures by August 19 for a place on the November ballot. If he earns a minimum of 3% of the 2014 general election vote, the Constitution Party will be reclassified from a Political Group to a Political Party and share the same ballot access privileges as the exiting four qualified parties. The Alaska Constitution Party was previously affiliated with the Alaskan Independence Party, of which Myers served two years as Vice Chairman.
