ICYMI: Begich’s Strong Campaign Criss-Crossing Alaska


ANCHORAGE — Mark Begich is running a campaign centered on connecting directly with Alaskans, a skill that comes from a lifetime spent in Alaska and an intimate understanding of the unique needs of the state and its residents.

Begich is “renowned for stopping unannounced at bingo halls to call numbers” and recently traveled almost 4,000 miles by plane and car across Alaska campaigning in a single week.

“Mark Begich knows that at the heart of this election is connecting with real Alaskans in every corner of the state about issues important to them – Mark Begich will go anywhere in Alaska to listen to Alaskans and then deliver results,” said Max Croes, Communications Director for Alaskans for Begich.

A born and raised Alaskan, Begich is proud of the over 5,000 Alaskans who have contributed to his campaign – from salmon setnetters, to substitute teachers, to local small business owners – more than all of his opponents put together.

“Begich is taking nothing for granted. At a lakeside picnic rally about an hour’s drive from Anchorage on Sunday, he cautioned supporters that a juggernaut of Republican money – “upwards of $30m” – is being poured into Alaska to try to “buy a senator and control Washington. The only way we’re going to win is with people, pushing back,” he said, exhorting supporters to turn out everyone they know to vote.” Guardian July 23, 2023
