Yes, if it were just Begich or just Walker the race would be close. Dunleavy might still win, but not easily. There isn't room for two though.

Although Walker has suspended his campaign, I believe we leave him in on the race, as his name will remain on the ballot?

For those who follow Alaska politics: Does Walker dropping out and endorsing Begich make him the frontrunner now? Or not enough to catch Dunleavy?
