Mead Treadwell for Senate   Leave a comment

Mead TreadwellSo, Alaska’s Lieutenant Governor is running for the GOP nomination for US Senate from Alaska. If he wins the nomination, he gets to run against Mark Begich.

For now, I am only interested in finding a GOP candidate who can beat Mark Begich, who is considered vulnerable. Most Alaskans are non-partisans (52%) or Republicans (38%), so Democrats have a tough time. There is a strong libertarian streak. This is why a candidate like Mead Treadwell appeals to us.

My campaign will focus on three principles:

• Fighting for liberty by reversing the Obama Administration’s relentless assault on our families and our freedoms.
• Fighting for fiscal sanity in Washington, D.C. We borrow too much, we spend too much, and we tax too much.
• Fighting for Alaska. The federal government must deal with Alaska’s issues on Alaska’s terms. Ted Stevens fought every day to bring power and decision-making home, and so will I.

His approval ratings as Lt. Gov. are high, his business background and pro-development stance resonate with us, and his past association with Wally Hickel makes him something like Alaskan nobility.

But I don’t know if he should be Senator — not yet. I need to investigate more, way the pros and cons between him and Joe Miller, check out if there are any others running. And, even after one of them wins the primary, there are still other parties to consider for the general. I promised Mark Begich when he voted for ObamaCare that he would NEVER get my vote and I am absolutely committed to getting him out of office this time around. Otherwise, he’ll play the “I-have-seniority” card and, like Lisa, we’ll never get him out of there.

So Joe Miller, Mead Treadwell or someone else, who ever I vote for has to have a good chance of winning against Begich.

If you’re interested in this race, do check out my earlier post on Joe Miller and compare the two candidate websites.
