Letter: Dan's not the man for Alaska

Dan Sullivan keeps telling us he is a real Alaskan, but a look at his campaign contributions says otherwise. Most of his donors work in big business outside of Alaska and donate more at one time than some Alaskans make in a month. It seems like the number of wealthy Lower 48 millionaires donating to Sullivan far outweigh the number of Alaskans who donate to him. Based on where Sullivan has been fundraising, he seems to care more about his corporate buddies than he does about ordinary Alaskans. Alaskans have shown who they support and have given their support to Sen. Mark Begich, who is focused on issues that are important to Alaskans — not outside interests.
