Alaska gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker is has refused to endorse Democratic Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) for re-election.
Begich is backing Walker for the governor’s seat. But at a recent campaign event Walker, an independent, refused to answer when he was asked about his choice for Senate.
"I’ve heard that question asked in more creative ways—what sign will be in my yard?" Walker said. "The sign in my yard is going to be Walker-Mallott for governor and lieutenant governor, so that’s all I’m going to say about that."
Begich, the incumbent Democrat, is running against Republican businessman Dan Sullivan. Alaska’s contentious U.S. Senate race could swing the Senate toward a Republican majority if Sullivan wins.
The most recent poll suggests Sullivan leads Begich by five points.
