Since this is the first day back at work for many of you, I thought we’d kick off 2017 with some New Year’s resolutions we imagine some elected officials, institutions, and politicos might — or should — have considered.
In our December 24h episode, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar discuss Gov. Walker’s proposed budget, the pay cut he’s asked for, and Obama’s action restricting development in large offshore areas of Alaska. We are also joined by outgoing Alaska Democratic Party (ADP) Executive Director Kay Brown to discuss her accomplishments, the controversy surrounding the hiring of her successor, Jay Parmely, and the future her party.
What does former U.S. Senator Mark Begich think of Gov. Walker’s budget, the job Ethan Berkowitz is doing as Mayor, and how progressives can combat the incoming Trump administration? Oh, and what will Begich be running for next? Check out all that and much more on this week’s installment of The Midnight Sun Podcast.
Yesterday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, one of the show’s hosts Mika Brzezinski, made the point that Pres. Barack Obama is a hot commodity this election season as down-ticket Democrats clamor for his presence at local campaign rallies, his appearance in campaign ads and mailers, and his voice on robocalls.
; Mark Begich announced he would not run as a write-in candidate for U.S. Senate this morning on the Rick Rydell radio program on AM…
According to Mark Begich, Alaska’s former junior senator will be making a significant announcement about his future at 8 A.M. Thursday morning on Rick Rydell’s radio show on AM 650 KENI. Rydell confirmed as much on Facebook this afternoon:
Begich write-in gains momentum, AK GOP apologizes to Demboski, and Demboski dumps on AK GOP. It’s Friday in the Sun!
GOP dissension, gays on the rise, and Begich considers a write-in run. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!
Lisa gets her left on, Ketchikan heats up, and Stock restaffs…again….It’s Tuesday in the Sun!!!!
Begich up for a big gig, write-in madness sweeps the Mat-Su, and GCI tries to make amends.
