Firefighters' union endorses Murkowski

Posted: Thursday, September 23, 2010

The Alaska Professional Fire Fighters announced its endorsement of Lisa Murkowski in Alaska's upcoming U.S. Senate race, its president said Wednesday.

Mark Drygas, the head of the 490-member union, told the Empire of its decision to make the endorsement, saying "Lisa Murkowski has always been a supporter of firefighters' issues, and safety issues in general."

The union's executive board reached its decision last week at a meeting in Girdwood, Drygas said.

Murkowski announced her decision Friday to be a write-in candidate for the Nov. 2 general election. She will challenge Joe Miller, the GOP candidate she lost to in the primary, and Democrat Scott McAdams for the seat.
