Republican voters in House District 9 will consider three familiar candidates when they go to the polls in Tuesday’s primary election. Incumbent George Rauscher will again face Jim Colver, a fellow Mat-Su resident who he beat in the 2016 primary, and Pam Goode, a Delta Junction-area resident who he faced in the general election, when she ran on the Constitution Party ticket.

District 9 stretches from Delta Junction south to Valdez and west to Palmer.
