House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has blown the cover off the “independent” label for Alyse Galvin, who is running for Congress against Rep. Don Young.
In a new ad on Twitter, Pelosi crows about Galvin, saying the candidate is now part of the House Speaker’s “Red to Blue” club.
Whether Pelosi had done any polling in Alaska to see if this was a wise move is a closely guarded campaign secret.
But most polling of the Pelosi name in Alaska has revealed she is among the least popular names in politics.
Galvin has presented herself as an independent but ran on the Democrat Primary ballot with the full support and endorsement of the Alaska Democratic Party.
Last time she ran, in 2018, Galvin purposefully distanced herself from Pelosi, telling reporters she “will not be supporting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for speaker and instead wants ‘new leadership.'”
