Alaska Support Industry Alliance Endorses Senator Sullivan for Re-election

ANCHORAGE, AK – The Alaska Support Industry Alliance has announced their endorsement of Senator Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) for re-election. In 2014, the Alliance endorsed Sullivan’s candidacy for Senate, the first political endorsement made by the organization in over 30 years.

“The Alliance has been impressed with Senator Sullivan’s strong record of advocating for

responsible resource development in Alaska, and fighting federal efforts to lock up our state,” said Rebecca Logan, Alliance CEO. “We are proud to endorse him for reelection and will work to help him win a well-deserved second term.”

Sullivan earned the Alliance’s endorsement for his successful efforts to promote policies that grow Alaska’s energy industry and provide opportunities for Alaska’s families and workers, including opening ANWR and eliminating federal restrictions imposed on responsible resource development.

“We believe Sen. Sullivan is uniquely suited to keep representing Alaska’s interests in the U.S. Senate,” Logan said. “Senator Sullivan has worked incredibly hard to ensure Alaska stays open for business, which is not an easy task in Washington, D.C. He has always responded to our priorities and concerns with an open mind and willingness to work hard to effect real change.”
