Lyman F. Hoffman (born February 13, 1950) is a Democratic member of the Alaska Senate, representing the S district since 1995, and from 1991 through 1992 previously. He was a member of the Alaska House of Representatives from 1986 through 1990, and from 1993 through 1994.

Affiliation[edit]

Hoffman, a registered Democrat, caucused with the Democratic minority during the 28th Senate, from 2013 to 2014. However, he endorsed Republican nominee Dan Sullivan during the 2014 U.S. Senate race.[1] Soon after, he announced he would switch caucuses, becoming the only Democrat to join the Republican-led majority caucus in the 29th Senate, beginning in 2015.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Hoffman was sentenced to three days in jail, one year's probation and had his driver's license revoked for 90 days after a drunk driving conviction in June 2004.[3]
