It is confirmed that Ron Paul supporter Russ Millete was voted in as chair. (Note that according to AK Republican rules he will not have full power until Feb. 2013). Co-chair is RP supporter Deb Brown.
Also, secretary and treasurer are RP supporters.
The 6 delegates that were assigned to Ron Paul were filled by the top RP supporters that we wanted. Also, we got the 6 alternates.
The only bonus in the delegate count was that 3 RP people got in as alternates for the Santorum team.
Kathleen Miller (wife to Joe Miller, but an RP supporter - I can vouch personally for that) was selected as part of the electoral college (Alaska sends 3). I understand that is big.
As far as the meeting, the vote went ahead and as they waited for the results Reudrich abruptly adjourned the meeting citing they were out of time. They had not yet worked on final resolutions or voted on rule changes - things that the RP camp really wanted to do. So, there was business that didn't get done, but it was late and they are trying to get a meeting scheduled for June to implement some new rules - maybe get Reudrich out of power sooner.
All in all, a powerful moment for RP in Alaska!

We have taken over the Republican party in Alaska! The new Chair and Vice Chair are now both Ron Paul supporters! This just happened today, and I've been told thanks to some Santorum supporters who joined the cause.
Sweet victory in Alaska! Thank you to all the folks nation-wide who have kept up the encouragement and the plan to send delegates. Change is coming!
