Understanding Dunleavy’s win
Re: the recent news about Dunleavy getting one of the largest votes in history to be governor. Let me remind my fellow citizens the facts of two things:
First, he the same as bought votes by promising every man, woman and child a $3,000 PFD.
Second, he ran as a Republican unopposed. The two opponents that were elected in the primary, Mark Begich as a Democrat, and Bill Walker as an independent, both have their own strong support group. As was predicted by many people before the primary election, they split the votes of many thousands, assuring Dunleavy a clear path.
