Fairbanks, AK - Democrat Larry Murakami  won Tuesday night’s primary election against Uriah  Nalikak  for a spot on the ballot for House District 2 in East Fairbanks.  Murikami is a rookie to Alaska politics, but he says he’s not nervous about continuing the campaign season into November. “I know I’m new, but I also think to some degree, that’s an advantage," he says.  "There are definitely some people that are ok with somebody who is absolutely not a career politician.”
