As of the June 1 filing deadline, there are five people running for the seat currently held by Dan Sullivan in the U.S. Senate, including Sullivan himself. On the phone and joining us for Coffee@KYUK is Dr. Al Gross. He is an Independent candidate who has been endorsed by the Alaska Democratic Party.
Gross grew up in the state, the son of the state attorney general under former governor Jay Hammond. He has been a commercial fisherman, a doctor, and now he’s running for one of Alaska’s U.S. Senate seats.
