U.S. Rep. Don Young has won the Republican nomination for U.S. House.

Young faced three challengers in Tuesday night’s primary, none of whom gained traction or reported much for fundraising. The 81-year-old Young is the longest-serving Republican in the House, having served since 1973.

He will face political upstart Forrest Dunbar, who won the Democratic nomination for U.S. House in Alaska.

Dunbar, a 29-year-old Yale Law School graduate, serves in the Alaska Army National Guard.

While he has not raised nearly as much cash as Young, Dunbar has been traveling around the state and running a cheeky, social media-driven campaign to help get his name out.
