McAdams Focusing on Presenting Self as Positive Candidate

Dave Donaldson, APRN – Juneau

While some voters might see the General Election race as an extension – or rerun – or the Republican Primary campaigns, there are still three major candidates vying for the job. And Democrat Scott McAdams’ campaign won’t be affected by a Murkowski write in campaign.
He has been traveling Friday following his debate with Joe Miller in Juneau yesterday.

His communication director Heather Handyside says that, when he entered the race in June, McAdams expected to run against a Republican party that was united at the state and national levels. But that changed after the Primaries.

Handyside says McAdams will focus on presenting himself as a positive candidate – and a positive member of the U.S. Senate.

Handyside says there are any number of ways to look at how the votes will be decided, but Democrats believe the “quibbling” among Republicans will be a turn-off for voters and they will take a fresh look at McAdams.
