governor debate

ANCHORAGE — With rumors swirling about the Dena’ina Convention Center that former U.S. Senator Mark Begich would soon be entering the race, thereby greatly complicating the path to re-election for incumbent Gov. Bill Walker, the three leading candidates in the race took part in a forum called ‘The Great Debate’ to cap the day-long Alaska Oil and Gas Association conference on Thursday.

Walker, the only Independent Governor in the nation, went head-to-head against Republican challengers Scott Hawkins, an Anchorage businessman and frontrunner Mike Dunleavy, a former Senator from Wasilla, who abdicated his seat late last year to focus on his gubernatorial run.
