Treadwell Decides on a Run for Republican Senate Nomination

Alaska’s current Lt. Governor Mead Treadwell, today, filed is paperwork to enter into the 2014 republican senatorial race. Treadwell had been discussing plans to seek an office in the 2014 primary race for some time now…


Treadwell: “That means I won’t be running for lieutenant governor, I know there are others who put their names in and are thinking about it. The main thing is, I want to make sure that we’ve got a credible conservative candidate to go up against Mark Begich in 2014. We have to work hard to win the nomination that means we have to work hard to win the race.”


Treadwell, during an interview on KSRM’s “Sound Off” commented on the importance of the 2014 senate race in Alaska…


Treadwell: “This is one of six races across the country that can determine control of the U.S. Senate, and that’s so important to Alaska. Lisa Murkowski could be chair of the Senate Energy Committee, if the republicans win that majority. We would be able to turn back what the federal government has done, cutting the National Petroleum Reserve Alaska in half, we’d be able to get a debate again on “Obamacare” in the Senate. This is a very important race, not just for Alaska but for the country, and we’re going to work it as hard as we can.”
