Six years ago, Mark Begich narrowly won his position as a U.S. Senator for Alaska. Now Senator Begich is in a fight to keep that seat with a strong challenge from former Attorney General and DNR Commissioner Dan Sullivan.

APRN offered Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan an hour-long Talk of Alaska on Wednesday, Oct. 15, but his campaign staff declined the invitation, saying their schedule wouldn’t allow the time.
