ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Unofficial results show three Republican Alaska state legislators – all of whom hold leadership positions – trailing in their primary elections.

Those results could change when questioned and absentee ballots are counted. The Division of Elections on Wednesday said it was still processing ballots and didn’t have a number of questioned or absentee ballots yet.

Unofficial results show Senate Majority Leader Peter Micciche of Soldotna trailing in his race, as was Rep. Charisse Millett, the Republican minority leader from Anchorage.

Rep. Gabrielle LeDoux, a Republican who holds a leadership position in the House’s Democratic-led majority, also was behind in her race. LeDoux is chair of the House Rules Committee who schedules bills for floor votes.

LeDoux was labeled by state GOP Chairman Tuckerman Babcock as a “turncoat.”
