President Donald Trump tweeted out his endorsement of Sen. Dan Sullivan on Tuesday. Sullivan has served Alaska in Washington, D.C. since upsetting former Sen. Mark Begich in 2014 and is running for a second six-year term.
The Sullivan campaign responded, “Senator Sullivan, President Trump and his administration have been working together to advance numerous critical priorities for Alaska, including approval of the King Cove road, rebuilding our Alaska-based military and Coast Guard, cleaning up our oceans, increasing access to federal lands, opening ANWR, combatting domestic violence and sexual assault through increased resources for victims, and historic investments to public safety in rural Alaska. Senator Sullivan welcomes the President’s endorsement and thanks him and his administration for their ongoing work with the Congress to make Alaska a stronger, more prosperous and resilient state.”
Al Gross, a candidate for Senate on the Democrat ticket, received the endorsement of State Sen. Scott Kawasaki of Fairbanks.
