RUNNING 2016 - Alaska General Election: House District 14

Lora Reinbold (born in Fairbanks, Alaska) is an American politician and a Republican member of the Alaska House of Representatives since January 15, 2013 representing District 26. She is currently the only member of the Alaska State Legislature who is unaffiliated with a caucus organization, as she was ejected from the Republican-led majority caucus on March 16, 2015.

Reinbold voted against an operating budget put forward by the House majority caucus on March 13, 2015, defying caucus rules to do so. She argued that the draft budget did not make steep enough cuts to the University of Alaska system and was, in effect, not conservative enough. On March 16, House Speaker Mike Chenault announced that Reinbold had been kicked out of the majority caucus for her vote and stripped of most of her committee assignments. Her office staff was also cut from four to one.

Reinbold joined minority Democrats in voting against the operating budget again on April 27, 2015. The dissenters left the majority caucus short of the three-fourths majority needed to approve tapping Alaska's budget reserve to cover a $3.2 million deficit.

  • 2012 Redistricting combined the Eagle River Valley and Southfork portions of former District 32 (represented by Republican Mike Hawker) and a portion of former District 17 (represented by Republican Anna Fairclough), creating a new District 26. Anna Fairclough, the new district's only incumbent resident, chose to run instead for a newly configured Senate seat, leaving the new District 26 seat open. Reinbold won the three-way August 28, 2012 Republican Primary with 1,610 votes (46.15%), and won the November 6, 2012 General election with 6,903 votes (72.53%) against Democratic nominee Roberta Goughnour.
