PS STRATEGIES REPS FOR BIG FALL ELECTION
Mary Ann Pruitt of PS Strategies has the contract to represent the Republican Governors Association in its support of the Republican nominee for Alaska. The work involves everything from media buys to voter identification and strategy.
Although the association does not get involved in the Primary, its General Election push is a huge endeavor for the Anchorage company, which has a longtime track record with statewide campaigns. RGA already has an Alaska media buy of over $1 million going into the General Election.
Thirty-three states are led by Republican governors, and Alaska is back in play for a flip in 2018, and is one of the RGA’s key targets.
This year, polls show that undeclared Gov. Bill Walker is the least popular governor in the nation, and the state tilts Republican. The current Republican candidates are Mike Dunleavy, Scott Hawkins, and Mead Treadwell, as well as Michael Sheldon of Petersburg.
