September 18, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Rep. Don Young won the Republican primary for the state's only House seat, state officials said in Juneau.

With the last 350 absentee and provisional ballots tallied from the Aug. 26 election, Young beat Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell by 304 votes.

Parnell, who had the backing of Gov. Sarah Palin, has said he would ask for a recount. That could take 10 days, officials said.
