McAdams Prepares for General Election

Lori Townsend, APRN – Anchorage

Scott McAdams, who won last night’s Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate race is still mostly unknown around the state. McAdams is the mayor of Sitka. He says he’s prepared to beat Joe Miller in November if he maintains his lead in the Republican Primary. McAdams says although the Tea Party express is a national phenomenon, he doesn’t think it reflects Alaska’s values of family and community. He says they are the party of no.

McAdams says he believes Alaska needs federal help to develop new models of energy development into the future.

He says he didn’t always agree with Senator Murkowski’s decisions but he respected her work as a public servant.  If Miller prevails, he says it’s an unfortunate end to her career as Senator, but he’ll focus on the campaign fight with Miller.

McAdams said he didn’t have figures on how much money he has on hand currently.
