U.S. Sen. Mark Begich has had two town halls in Anchorage this past week, which I’ve been remiss in covering. Alaska Commons has been diligent, however. Begich will be having another one tonight at the Spenard Rec Center, starting at 7 p.m. Then he’s off to Fairbanks to hold a veterans town hall on Friday.
According to a campaign press release, “From now through Election Day Mark Begich will speak directly with Alaskans about their ideas for the future of our state, his first term accomplishments and goals for a second term.”
Begich is calling it his “Standing Up For Alaska Tour” which has already visited Bethel, Homer and Petersburg, and will continue on to Fairbanks, Juneau, Palmer and Kenai and back to Anchorage.
GOP candidate Dan Sullivan may have the wind at his back, but Begich is at his best at these kinds of events.
