GOP lawmaker draws late opposition

Posted: Friday, October 22, 2010

FAIRBANKS - An opposition group has been formed late in the campaign season in an effort to unseat Alaska state Rep. Mike Kelly.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner said a group called "Alaskans Opposed to the Re-election of Mike Kelly" is distributing literature and online advertising in a negative campaign against the Fairbanks Republican.

Kelly said the group is relying on a handful of votes and quotes taken out of context and called its use of negative campaign tactics unfortunate.

A previously-run edition of Doonesbury erroneously appeared on page A9 of Thursday's Empire.

The times listed for Saturday's Red Ribbon Week swim hosted by SEARHC which appeared on page A7 of Thursday's Empire, were incorrect. The swim times are from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. and from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
