The Republican Party of Alaska is the affiliate of the Republican Party in Alaska. Randy Ruedrich of Anchorage is the party chairman.

It is the dominant or majority party in Alaska. Following the elections of 2008, Republicans hold the following statewide executive offices:

  • Governor
  • Lt. Governor

Republicans are also the majority party in the Alaska House of Representatives and maintain a minority plurality in the Alaska Senate which is controlled by a coalition made up of 10 Democrats and 3 Republicans. There are seven Republicans in the minority combined with the three Republicans in the coalition makes for 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats equally.

Republicans hold one U.S. Senate seat and have held the state's at-large seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for over 40 years. The Alaska Republican Party has also greatly helped GOP presidential candidates in the state and has transformed the Last Frontier into one of the most staunchly Republican states in the nation. All Republican presidential nominees have won Alaska in recent elections; the last (and only) Democrat to carry Alaska was Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.

Republican John McCain won Alaska in 2008 with 59.42% of the total statewide vote over Democrat Barack Obama who received 37.89%, a 21.53-percent margin of victory for the senior U.S. Senator from Arizona.
