Mayor Dan Sullivan, the last of the undecided political contenders decided which race to run in early on Wednesday morning.
It was announced early Wednesday morning that Dan Sullivan, the mayor of Alaska’s largest urban area will toss his hat into the ring in the Lt. governor’s race set for 2014.
In the Lt. governor’s race he will go head to head with State Senator Lesil McGuire, and Bob Williams, moderate Democrat hailing from Palmer. Although Parnell decided to run for another term, Parnell’s second in command, Mead Treadwell decided to open up the Lt governor’s seat yesterday to vie for the senate seat currently held by Mark Begich and comes up for grabs in 2014.
Sullivan filed his intent with APOC earlier this month without stating his intentions as to which race he would take part in. He has served as Anchorage’s mayor since 2009 and is on his final term as mayor of that city.
Dan is a fourth generation Alaskan and the son of Anchorage’s longest serving mayor, George Sullivan.
