Sullivan Backers Call for Government Shutdown

ANCHORAGE — After spending and raising nearly half a million dollars for U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan, the anti-Alaska Club for Growth is calling for a government shutdown.

Dan Sullivan wholeheartedly endorsed the Club for Growth’s agenda with a TV ad touting their endorsement. The Club for Growth returned the favor with nearly $200,000 in TV ads and mailers and over $200,000 in donations.

“In a secret meeting Dan Sullivan agreed to represent the Club for Growth’s dangerous agenda of privatizing Social Security, turning Medicare into a voucher system and shutting down the government. Alaska’s families, fishermen and rural communities know shutting down the government has disastrous consequences for Alaska,” said Max Croes, Alaskans for Begich Communications Director.

The anti-Alaska Club for Growth has previously spent over $1 million in Alaska trying to defeat Congressman Don Young and U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski. Young once called the Club “one of the most extreme groups in Washington D.C.”

Sullivan still refuses to share any details of what promises were made to the Club for Growth in a secret Washington D.C. interview process known as a “policy murder board.”
