Race Analysis

10/9/10 -- The polls confirm what we've long thought about this race: Sean Parnell will continue the GOP's eight-year run in the Governor's mansion here.

----------Race Preview---------

Sarah Palin has a penchant for shocking the political world, and her decision to resign from the governorship of Alaska was no exception. That left her Lieutenant Governor, Sean Parnell, as the occupant at 716 Calhoun Avenue.

Parnell has actually drawn a quality challenger in 2008 House candidate and former state House Minority Leader Ethan Berkowitz. But if Berkowitz couldn’t defeat Don Young in 2008, we don’t see him defeating Parnell in 2010.
