There are many reasons for supporting Frank Murkowski for governor of our great state in November. With the proven leadership experience, proven track record of putting Alaska and Alaskans first, and home-grown family roots in Alaska, there can really only be one choice: Frank Murkowski.
We have trusted him for 22 years as a U.S. senator and as governor he will bring the abilities that have produced effective and efficient national legislation to the state level. At this time more than any other in our history, we can't afford split leadership in our lawmakers. The past eight years have proven frustrating for us all. I can only imagine the frustration of those who serve for us in Juneau.
We need a leader that can bring unity in Juneau and throughout Alaska. I trust him to listen to Alaskans when it comes time for his appointment of his replacement in the U.S. Senate.
I have known the Murkowski family for 30 of my 33 years here in Alaska. Frank and Nancy have raised a successful and loving family. We need their leadership and vision in Juneau. They love Alaska and Alaskans and that is why I strongly support Frank as the next governor of Alaska and urge you to do the same.
