Walker leads with 4,634 more votes than Parnell
Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell has conceded in the state's gubernatorial race. He issued a statement Saturday, after the Associated Press named Bill Walker the winner Friday evening. A count by the Division of Elections Friday showed Walker with 4,634 more votes than Parnell. About 10,000 absentee ballots remain to be counted.
Parnell wrote on Facebook Saturday he'd met with Walker and offered him office space to help with the transition. Walker is scheduled to be sworn in on Dec. 1.
