On Thursday, Senator David Wilson (R – Wasilla) held a press conference that was, well, bizarre. The audio from the press conference can be found here:
The press conference was unique as it was just Senator Wilson. Usually press conferences are organized through the senate press office. Senator Wilson set this one up on his own and had no staff with him. The last time a senator held a rogue press conference was probably when Senator Mike Dunleavey (R – Wasilla) held one at the Muldoon Fred Meyer parking lot in October 2016. I was there and that one was also bizarre. However, Senator Dunleavey did not appear to use state resources for his press conference (parking lot) while Senator Wilson did (Anchorage Legislative Information Office).
