Yundt files for House District 7, making for 2-way GOP race

    Robert Yundt II

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) - A Valley home builder has filed to run for House District 7 in Wasilla, making it a two-way Republican primary.

    According to Must Read Alaska, Robert Yundt II is a third-generation carpenter whose family history in the valley runs back to the early 1940s. He has built close to 100 projects around the valley, ranging from single-family homes to 32-unit apartments.

    Earlier this year, Chris Kurka filed for that seat.

    Kurka is the former executive director of Alaska Right to Life and is also a third-generation Alaskan who has been politically active.

    Both are seeing to replace Rep. Colleen Sullivan-Leonard, who is not running for reelection.

    Former House Rep. Lynn Gattis filed earlier this month to run for office but didn’t indicate if she’ll run for House District 7 or for Senate Seat D, which was won by Sen. David Wilson four years ago.
