Former President Donald Trump wants to exert his influence in Alaska this November, with endorsements for several Republican candidates: U.S. House candidate and former Gov. Sarah Palin, U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka and Gov. Mike Dunleavy.
But with just weeks to go before the November election, Tshibaka is facing a multimillion-dollar ad campaign against her from a major GOP group, and Sarah Palin is trying to gain back ground after losing to a Democrat in the special election.
In this episode, host Elizabeth Harball talks with ADN reporter Iris Samuels about why, even with Trump’s support, Tshibaka and Palin aren’t finding a smooth path to victory.
