GOP Sharon Jackson files for lieutenant governor

Republican Sharon Jackson, who was on the staff of Sen. Dan Sullivan until earlier this month, has filed for the office of lieutenant governor.

Jackson has been involved with political organizing for years, and is the president of a Republican women’s club in Anchorage, the Republican Women of Anchorage, (although she will likely have to resign that post, as club rules often don’t permit officers to be active candidates.) Her club’s goal is to  “diversify and grow our party and most of all give our Independents and Undeclared a reason to return.” Diversifying the Republican Party has been a long-held goal of Jackson.

Jackson was a delegate to the 2016 Republican National Convention from Alaska, one of 11 delegates from the state who were bound by party rules to support Donald Trump.

Hawkins

She worked for National Write Your Congressman and the National Federation of Independent Businesses in the past, and is a military veteran of the U.S. Army.

For Sullivan, she served constituents from the Anchorage office of the senator, and worked extensively on behalf of veterans services. This is her first run for public office.

This story will be updated.

I filed for my run for Congress right before the deadline my first run for office, and I know how fun and challenging campaigns can be.

    Also from past experience…Candidates may not know this but Donald Trump did not make the media guide because he missed the filing deadline. Make sure you pay your $100 and $300 dollars for the guide. If you don’t make it through the primary the 300.00 If you want the added name exposure the election booklet provides.. This mailer that goes out to all Alaska before the general is a must the deadline is before the primary so in order for every voter to see your profile it needs to be done…Check the division of elections website. ON THE SITE currently filed and ready to be on the ballot.
