Northeast Ohio native Dan Sullivan skipped a forum in Anchorage yesterday that was attended by Mark Begich and Libertarian Mark Fish. Why would Sullivan skip a candidate forum so late in the election? Turns out, he was just feeling a little homesick.
While the other Alaska senate candidates were answering questions about Alaska, Dan Sullivan was prepping for his big homecoming, a secret fundraising trip to Cleveland. Sullivan continues to raise more money from Ohio donors than from any other state, including hefty sums from his wealthy family and friends.
It’s not surprising that Dan Sullivan tried to keep this fundraising swing back home under wraps as he continues to try to convince Alaskans that he is one of them. But he’s not fooling anyone.
His primary opponent, Mead Treadwell, put it best: “I’ve got a jar of mayonnaise in my refrigerator that’s been there longer than Dan Sullivan’s been in Alaska.”
We hope Dan Sullivan enjoyed his quick trip back to Ohio — he’ll have plenty of free time to spend there after November 4th.
