RELEASE: This Week’s Sullivan Blunder


ANCHORAGE — U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan fell flat in an attempt to introduce himself to Alaskans by failing to know which Alaska city he was in when filing his candidacy paperwork.

Dan Sullivan tweeted he was “filing for U.S. Senate in Fairbanks.”

PROBLEM: He was standing in Anchorage outside the Division of Elections. Without telling Alaskans how he confused two of Alaska’s largest cities, Sullivan deleted the tweet.

Sullivan’s mistake isn’t gone, however. The deleted Tweet is stored here.

The error comes at a time when Sullivan is doing everything he can to avoid legitimate questions about his Alaska residency.
