State Rep Johansen qualifies for ballot

JUNEAU — State Rep. Kyle Johansen has qualified for the November ballot.

Johansen opted to sit out the crowded Republican primary for House District 33, which included state Rep. Peggy Wilson of Wrangell. Johansen, who’s from Ketchikan, wound up in the same district as Wilson as a result of redistricting.

Earlier this week, Johansen said his decision to skip the primary was strategic. He said he expected low turnout in the primary and if there were four Republicans in the race, he would be “really rolling the dice” with his chances.

Johansen needed to gather at least 50 qualified signatures to get on the November ballot. While he remains a Republican, he will appear on the ballot as an unaffiliated candidate.
