Only two people submitted applications by yesterday's deadline for the job of state fish and game commissioner: Cora Campbell and Ron Somerville.
Campbell, of course, is currently serving as acting commissioner.
Somerville is a former chairman of the Alaska Board of Game.
Under state law, it's now up to the fisheries and game boards, acting jointly, to send the governor a list of qualified persons to pick from.

Gov. Sean Parnell already has said he wants Campbell as his commissioner.
