ANCHORAGE — The Alaska Democratic Party slammed state Rep. Lindsey Holmes for switching her party affiliation to Republican.
“Rep. Holmes has deceived the voters of her district,” Democratic Party chair-elect Mike Wenstrup said in a statement issued after Holmes announced that she changed her party registration. “She should have been honest about her intentions. If she intended to serve as a Republican, she should have run as a Republican.”
Holmes, who represents west Anchorage, was re-elected as a Democrat in November.
