Real estate mogul Donald Trump would not let states take control of federal lands, the Republican presidential candidate said in a recent interview.
The timing of his letter isnâ€™t lost on Begich. Tomorrow Alaska Republicans will go to party administered voting locations around the state to divy up 25 of Alaskaâ€™s 28 delegates to the national convention among the various candidates for President. â€œCome Super Tuesday youâ€™d think heâ€™d want Alaskaâ€™s 28 delegates, but first you gotta know Alaska exists.â€ said Begich.
The Alaska Democratic Party (ADP) is very aware of this very human tendency. Their move this week to sue the state so they can change their party rules and let those who arenâ€™t registered members of their party run on their primary ballot is a blatant attempt to use this fact to manipulate the system and make their candidates more electable.
The Alaska Democratic Party today announced the three names they are giving Gov. Bill Walker to replace former Rep. Max Gruenberg. Governor Walker will have 30 days from the date of the vacancy to make his appointment. He does not have to choose one of the three candidates nominated by the Democratic Party. His choice will have to be approved by the House Democrats.
