Breaking: Donald Trump endorses Mike Dunleavy

DUNLEAVY RESPONSE: I WELCOME THE SUPPORT

President Donald Trump took to Twitter and endorsed Mike Dunleavy for governor of Alaska today. Within the first 20 minutes, the Twitter message went like wildfire across the Alaska political landscape.

Dunleavy, the Republican nominee, wasted no time in acknowledging the endorsement.

“Trump’s administration has been good for Alaska, and I welcome the President’s support, along with that of Alaska’s congressional delegation,” Dunleavy said in a statement. “Our team in D.C., working with the President, has opened ANWR for responsible resource development, cut taxes, and repealed job-killing regulations. With the stars finally aligned on the federal level, it’s time to bring change to Juneau and unleash Alaska’s true potential.”

Trump won Alaska by a margin of 15 points over Hillary Clinton in 2016, with 51.28 percent of the vote. He is still largely popular among the conservative stronghold state that has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1968, Alaska last voted in the majority for a Democrat when President Lyndon B. Johnson’s ran for election in 1964, after he took office subsequent to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
