DGA Statement on Democratic Candidate for Alaska Governor Les Gara Advancing to the General Election

From the Chair’s Desk

DGA Chair North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper released the following statement on Democratic candidate Les Gara advancing to the general election for governor of Alaska:

“As a former state representative and assistant attorney general, Les Gara is a proven fighter for the people of Alaska. Les is running for governor to increase opportunities for all Alaskans by supporting local businesses, creating good-paying jobs, investing in renewable energy projects that will lower families’ electric bills, and funding schools to help young people succeed. As the only pro-choice candidate in the race, he will fight to ensure Alaska remains a safe place for women to make their own reproductive health care decisions.

“The DGA congratulates Les Gara on advancing to the general election, and we’re proud to support his run for governor of the Last Frontier.”
