Walker to announce decision on run Wednesday

Posted: Tuesday, September 21, 2010

JUNEAU - Bill Walker plans to announce Wednesday whether he'll re-enter the race for governor as a write-in candidate.

That's according to campaign manager Taylor Bickford, who says Walker continues weighing his options.

Last week, Walker, who finished second in the GOP primary to Gov. Sean Parnell, said he wasn't inclined to run as a write-in. But Bickford said the landscape changed with U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski's announcement that she would run as a write-in in an effort to keep her job.

Parnell and Democrat Ethan Berkowitz have been trying to win Walker's support and that of his supporters. Walker has said he hasn't heard anything from either of them to earn his endorsement.
