ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Republican Mitt Romney has won Alaska's three electoral votes.

Romney easily defeated President Barack Obama in the nation's largest state, which has a solid Republican pedigree when voting in presidential elections.

Four years ago, Alaskans overwhelmingly voted for Republican presidential candidate John McCain and his running mate, then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Alaskans last chose a Democrat in 1964 when they voted for President Lyndon Johnson over Barry Goldwater by a 2-1 margin.

Neither Romney nor Obama campaigned in Alaska.
