Trump Campaign Excluded from Alaska Voter Guide after Missing Deadline

Trump's Alaska team never turned in the biographical information and statement necessary to be included in Alaska's voter guide. The Hill reports that the state's director of elections tried to warn Republican officials about it, including the Republican National Committee, Speaker Paul Ryan and Tucker Babcock, the chairman of the Alaska GOP, but no one responded.

Alaska Dispatch News reported that the Trump campaign's Alaska public relations contact is a former state representative who did time for bribery.
