JUNEAU (AP) — Democratic former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich is running for governor of Alaska, complicating Gov. Bill Walker's re-election bid.

Begich made his plans official shortly before a Friday filing deadline. Before the announcement, Walker, an independent, said he would skip the Democratic primary and gather signatures to appear on the general election ballot in November.

A recent court ruling allowed independents to run in the Democratic primary if they want the party's backing. Walker was elected in 2014 with Democratic support.
