This week on Coffee@KYUK, we’re talking with Alaska’s U.S. Senate candidates. Our guest for Oct. 13 is Dr. Al Gross, an independent who won the Democratic primary and is campaigning to replace Republican incumbent Dan Sullivan in the U.S. Senate.
Dr. Al Gross is running as a one-issue candidate. On the Democratic ballot as an independent for Alaska’s U.S. Senate seat, Gross wants to reform healthcare. He said that he does not want to take away the choices that exist now, but he does want to add a new choice because private healthcare is so expensive, especially in Alaska where costs are some of the highest in the county.
