Juneau, AK (KINY) - Taking to Twitter, Trump announces his full endorsement of Mike Dunleavy for Alaska's next Governor.
Trump has spent much of the day sharing his personal endorsements in races across the nation. In Alaska's race, things got complicated with Lt Gov Byron Mallott stepping down from his position following "inappropriate comments", which was followed by Governor Bill Walker stepping out of the race. Walker recently voiced his support for Mark Begich. Also on the ballot will be libertarian candidate Billy Toien. Walker and Mallott will also still be listed on the ballot, despite dropping out of the campaign.
