State Republican Party short of money, removes 2 staffers from payroll

The Alaska Republican Party has taken a pair of paid staffers off the payroll, laying off one, and stepped up its fundraising efforts amid a financial report to GOP leaders that showed less than $40 in its general operating account.

The party's executive director, Josh Walton, is still on the job but now works as a volunteer, while the state GOP no longer has an office manager, said Tuckerman Babcock, the state party chairman.

The Republicans still reported $100,000 in the party's state account in July, according to a handout obtained by Alaska Dispatch News. But nearly all of that cash is tied up in sub-accounts for individual districts and state House and Senate campaigns.

The party can grant as much as $100,000 to its gubernatorial candidate in next year's race, in which the GOP aims to unseat incumbent Bill Walker, a Republican-turned-independent who ran with a Democrat, Byron Mallott, who's now lieutenant governor.

1. That is lovely news

They're getting blamed for the idiot in the White House, for the corruption of Ted Stevens, for the stupidity of Caribou Barbie, and for the shortfall in oil revenues that's cut everybody's income.

I doubt the state will flip completely any time soon, but it's nice to see the GOP in trouble.
