At the request of @nas9860, @lrishConservNat and others, here's the estimated 2004 #Alaska U.S. Senate result by the 30 current county equivalents (boroughs & census areas). @lisamurkowski won 48-45 after a recount.

Again, this is an ESTIMATE using the traditional method to...
...allocate absentees to precincts. 2004 had a bunch of weird multi-HD early/?/ABS vote types, making this a bit more difficult than usual to decipher.

Here's the chart itself, if that's too small to decipher. Anchorage was more or less average for the state.
ESTIMATED precinct winner map, including the absentee/question/early votes.

This is from the VTD shp, so borders might not be 100% accurate. Prudhoe Bay had an actual voting precinct this cycle!

The US military has shot down 4 flying objects over North American airspace over the past 8 days.

3 of the objects remain unidentified as of late Sunday, and were separately shot down within 3 days.

Here’s what we know so far about these 4 objects👇…
Feb. 4: #ChineseSpyBalloon Shot Down
The 1st object was initially reported as unidentified until US officials said it was a Chinese surveillance balloon.

The @WhiteHouse and Pentagon said the balloon had violated US sovereignty by entering US airspace without permission.
The 200 feet-tall balloon was first reported after being seen by civilians in #Montana, after which it was allowed to traverse across the US, despite the maneuverable balloon passing over the site of sensitive airbases and strategic nuclear missile silos.

#US #China #ChineseSpyBalloon #Alaska… Image
1. Kirby said during a press briefing that the White House that the object, which was much smaller than the spy balloon shot down last week, was about the size of a car.
2. The “high-altitude object” was brought down Friday afternoon on the northeast portion of Alaska near the Canadian border over water that is frozen, Kirby said during the briefing. It was first seen by officials Thursday evening.

Il Pentagono, su ordine del presidente #Biden, ha abbattuto un oggetto non identificato sull'#Alaska.
John Kirby, portavoce del Pentagono, ha dichiarato che non è stato confermato se l'oggetto fosse un pallone, ma viaggiava a un'altitudine che lo rendeva una potenziale minaccia per gli aerei civili.
🚨🇺🇸Casa Bianca: non è chiaro se l'oggetto abbattuto vicino all'Alaska sia di proprietà di uno Stato: è molto più piccolo del pallone spia cinese.

An interesting NOTAM was issued (and remains in place) for portions of northern #Alaska near Prudhoe Bay this morning.

Advisory states closure is due to 'national security aircraft operations'. Image
A USAF C-130J is on task in the area. Has been orbiting a specific area for the last 30 minutes or so. Image
Not worth speculating. Just an interesting find. Full advisory can be found here:…

1) Trump won't be able to terminate the US Constitution but a Republican-led effort to rewrite it continues… Trump's "allies are busy pushing an unprecedented rewrite of the foundational document that would fundamentally alter Americans' daily lives."
2) "In 2022, a group with ties to Trump's orbit was able to get four more states to join its efforts."

"@CommonCause is trying both to thwart any new convention pushes alongside repealing old resolutions calling a convention."… Support them!

Another reason why I should leave San Francisco is the fact that I have fought every day for this city and rarely ever is there any support or team work. Whenever I walk through San Francisco I only ever see @bettersoma , @mattdorsey and Mr. J J in the trenches on the frontlines.
People complain every day but don’t ever do anything about it. It makes everything seem pointless. @michelletandler talks about fentanyl. When is she going to talk about our fentanyl emergency petition that has almost 1000 signatures? It takes two seconds to share petition.
I love @GMcDee2 @JacquiBerlinn because they aren’t picking and choosing what is “cool” to support. They support everything that is dedicated to combating fentanyl. They not only do their own fighting but they also support other people fights instead of picking what is “cool.”

Good morning, #Alaska! The Alaska absentee/early vote tracker has been updated to include yesterday's data:…

19,619 people have voted by absentee or early thus far - 11,750 absentee and 7,869 early. The top HDs for absentee + early are all Anchorage:

1) HD-9 (S Anchorage/Girdwood/Whittier)
2) HD-17 (Downtown Anchorage)
3) HD-16 (Turnagain/Airport/Sand Lake ANC)
4) HD-23 (Eagle River)
5) HD-11 (S Anchorage)

Bottom 5 are all roadless rural/Kodiak (HDs 37-40 & 5)
I don't recall Downtown ANC doing well in the these before. It's usually Juneau.
