Colver Denies Two-Term Incumbent Feige’s Bid for Re-election to District 9 Seat

Aug 20, 2014

Two-term Republican Rep. Eric Feige has been defeated in his bid for re-election. He came in last in a three-way race with two challengers who, like Feige, live in the Mat-Su.

Jim Colver and George Rauscher both outpolled the two-term incumbent. Unofficial results show Colver the top vote-getter with 36 percent of the vote; Rauscher was second with 34 percent; and Feige bringing up the rear with 29 percent of the votes.

District 9 stretches from the Mat-Su to the Richardson Highway corridor, extending southward to Valdez and northward to Delta Junction.

Colver will go up against Democrat Mabel Wimmer, another Palmer-area resident, in the November general election.
