Rainy day putting a damper on your plans?
Alaskans for Dunleavy holds an open house at its Anchorage headquarters Saturday this afternoon, 1-3 pm at 400 Northern Lights Blvd. Candidate for governor Mike Dunleavy will attend and yard signs and bumper stickers are available.
The campaign headquarters is one block away from another Dunleavy group of enthusiasts, named Dunleavy for Alaska. That group is headed by Terre Gales and is separate from the campaign, although is running an independent and robust operation to increase the name-recognition of the former state senator who is now the leading candidate for governor, according to polls from all of the candidates.
That office will also be open today, and people can stop by for their own version of Dunleavy signs, bumper stickers and pins. The campaigns are not allowed to coordinate their efforts and the candidate will not be in attendance there.
