UPDATED: Begich Agrees to Live Radio Debate

Sullivan Refusing to Address Young Voters, Participate in Live Radio

CONTACT: Max Croes907-570-2065

ANCHORAGE- Mark Begich recently committed to a live radio debate on KWHL hosted by morning radio hosts Bob and Mark. More than a week later, show hosts have not heard back from U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan.

Sullivan has also refused an invite from high school students to participate in a live forum with students and the League of Women Voters.

Mark Begich continues to hold public events across Alaska and will participate in 9 debates and forums, with or without Sullivan, from now until the November 4 election.

Sullivan has made headlines across the state for refusing to participate in the Kodiak fish debate, an Alaska tradition, only to cave after mounting pressure. The move was referred to as a “Senate candidate from Iowa, say, skipping a debate on corn.”

Sullivan continues to dodge simple questions from Alaskans. His recent inability to explain the millions of dollars the Koch brothers are using to support him caused Sullivan’s staff to pull him from an interview with Alaska’s largest TV station.

“Sullivan continues to let the Koch brothers and Karl Rove do the talking for him while he runs from questions about his residency, where his Outside support is coming from and why he refuses to face Alaska voters in a debate with Mark Begich. Dan Sullivan’s busy schedule apparently is keeping him from talking to Alaskans, but Mark Begich will continue to answer questions from Alaskans whether they’re from students or Bob & Mark,” said Max Croes Communications Director for Alaskans for Begich.
