GOP's Senate candidate: Alaska is my home, too

The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) The winner of Alaska's Republican Senate primary, Dan Sullivan, successfully turned back tea party opposition during an at-times contentious 10-month race. Next up, Democratic Sen. Mark Begich and he's tagging Sullivan as an outsider in a state where relationships and roots matter.

Sullivan is a former natural resources commissioner and attorney general for Alaska and a lieutenant colonel in the Marine Corps reserves. That could appeal to the influential bloc of military personnel in the state.

Still, Sullivan was born and raised in a Cleveland suburb and graduated from Harvard and Georgetown universities. He moved to Alaska in the 1990s and later lived in Maryland while working in the George W. Bush White House.

Sullivan states in a campaign ad that, quote, "I love Alaska. This is my home."
