Begich to Participate in 13 Debates and Forums in General Election


ANCHORAGE — As an increasingly contentious GOP primary enters its final week, Mark Begich remains focused on his commitment to be transparent and accountable to all Alaskans, announcing his commitment to 13 debates and forums prior to the general election.

“Alaskans expect to have a conversation with all candidates running for office and Mark Begich will continue to make himself and his campaign accessible to all Alaskans. Mark looks forward to an informed discussion on Alaska’s issues including resource development, maintaining Alaska’s world class fisheries, empowering rural Alaska, and protecting our privacy,” said Susanne Fleek-Green, Campaign Manager for Alaskans for Begich.

Alaska has a long and independent history that has given voice to candidates from all political affiliations and leanings. Continuing that tradition, Begich has asked that each host invite every candidate participating in this year’s Senate election who has earned ballot privileges (including the Libertarian Party and the Alaska Independence Party).

Since his days as Mayor of Anchorage, Begich has welcomed any and all candidates to publicly debate critical issues regardless of party affiliation or poll numbers.

As a sitting U.S. Senator, Senator Begich’s schedule remains subject to change according the U.S. Senate’s pending legislative calendar.
