|In-State Support Continues to Grow for Senator Murkowski’s Re-Election|
ANCHORAGE, AK – Today, four more Alaska state legislators representing communities across the state announced their endorsement for Senator Lisa Murkowski’s (R-Alaska) re-election. In making their endorsements, Senator Natasha Von Imhof (R- Anchorage) and House Representatives Adam Wool (D-Fairbanks), Louise Stutes (R-Kodiak), and Neal Foster (D-Nome) emphasized Murkowski’s deep understanding of Alaska, and her ability to consistently deliver results for her constituents.
“Being a lifelong Alaskan, Senator Murkowski has a true understanding of our people, culture, and values,” said Sen. Natasha Von Imhof (R- Anchorage).
“I haven’t always agreed with Senator Murkowski, but I have always admired her courage to make difficult decisions, take tough stances, and vote her conscience. I know she’s guided by a love for Alaska and the desire to stand up for Alaskans – values I always agree with,” said Rep. Adam Wool (D-Fairbanks).
“Lisa has done a fabulous job representing the diverse and independent viewpoints of Alaskans. In a political landscape dominated by party-line politics and special interests, Senator Murkowski has proven that she puts her constituents first. We need Lisa on the job, working to move all of Alaska forward,” said Rep. Louise Stutes (R-Kodiak).
“Lisa has always been a champion for our rural communities, and she has backed her words with valuable results time and time again. Without her support in Washington DC, I fear that rural Alaska will be pushed off to the back burner. I am proud to support Lisa Murkowski,” said Rep. Neal Foster (D-Nome).
In late January, State Senator Gary Stevens (R-Kodiak) and House Representatives Bryce Edgmon (I-Dillingham), Zack Fields (D-Anchorage) and Dan Ortiz (I-Ketchikan) announced their endorsement for Murkowski’s re-election.
Senator Murkowski and her re-election campaign look forward to announcing additional endorsements as the race progresses.
