ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Voters have rewarded Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell with his own four-year term more than a year after he took the reins of state government following Sarah Palin's resignation.

Parnell, a Republican, defeated Democrat Ethan Berkowitz Tuesday after a campaign that emphasized steady, competent leadership. He promised a pro-business climate that would provide incentives to petroleum companies to keep drilling for oil that could keep the trans-Alaska pipeline vital.

He also has maintained Palin's plan for a multibillion-dollar natural gas pipeline.

Parnell ran as Palin's running mate in 2006 and served as lieutenant governor until she abruptly quit in July 2009, eight months after she vaulted to national prominence as John McCain's running mate.
