DGA Statement on Mark Begich’s Primary Victory in Alaska
Today, Democratic Governors Association Chair Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) released the following statement on Mark Begich winning the Democratic nomination for Governor of Alaska:
“Congratulations to Mark Begich on winning the Democratic nomination for governor in Alaska,” said Inslee. “Mark’s nomination makes Alaska a significant pickup opportunity for Democrats this November.
“Mark has a record of bipartisan leadership and a plan to turn Alaska around. Alaskans can trust Mark Begich to protect the Permanent Fund Dividend, take on crime, and invest in job creation and economic growth. As the only pro-choice candidate on the ballot, Mark Begich will protect access to health care and fight for Alaskans’ shared values. I look forward to working with Mark to pick up this crucial state in November.”
