Former president George W Bush donates to Sullivan

JUNEAU — Contributors to Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Dan Sullivan’s campaign include a former president and first lady.

Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, each contributed $1,250 to Sullivan in April. The donations show up on his latest financial disclosure, which spans from April through June.

Sullivan served as an assistant secretary of state in the Bush White House.

He is vying for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat held by Democrat Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election. The other prominent Republican candidates are Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller.

The quarterly filing deadline was last Tuesday. Both Sullivan and Begich have released their full disclosure reports.

Treadwell and Miller have yet to release any details about the past fundraising quarter.

The primary is Aug. 19.
