Alaska’s largest police union is throwing its support behind Republican Mike Dunleavy in his gubernatorial campaign against incumbent Gov. Bill Walker and Democratic challenger Mark Begich.
The Public Safety Employees Association on Monday endorsed Dunleavy in an afternoon news conference.
“Public safety must be the No. 1 priority of our next governor,” said PSEA President Doug Massie. “Mike Dunleavy has spent many years living in rural Alaska. He understands the unique challenges that our members face every day. Mike Dunleavy knows and understands that until Alaska is safe, we will not move forward socially and economically.”
