8/20/14 KNBA News - Dan Sullivan wins Republican nomination for U.S. Senate; Oil tax change fails

Former Alaska attorney general Dan Sullivan is the Republican nominee to face Sen. Mark Begich in the November election. In the 3-way race for the Republican nomination, Sullivan took 40% of the vote, followed by Joe Miller with 32%, and Mead Treadwell with 25%.

Ballot measure 1, which would have revoked an oil tax law adopted by the state Legislature in 2013, failed; 52% of the electorate voted no, and 48% voted yes. Supporters of the no vote had waged a $15 million campaign to protect the oil tax law, which supporters say makes Alaska more attractive to oil company investments.

Several state Legislative seats are also on the ballot.
