Sitka Mayor to Challenge Murkowski’s Senate Seat

Sitka’s Mayor has filed to challenge Lisa Murkowski in her re-election campaign this year.  Scott McAdams says he’s joining the race  to take a local perspective to the nation’s capitol – and having someone connected to local communities would better serve the interests of Alaskans.

McAdams recognizes himself as the underdog candidate, saying Murkowski is better known throughout the state,  is intelligent and very articulate.  However, he believes his message of returning the seat to the people will get a better reception from voters than what he sees as national party leadership – or the views of one person.
