Press Release: New Poll Shows Dr. Al Gross and Dan Sullivan Tied in Race for Alaska Senate Seat

ANCHORAGE, AK — Brand new polling results released today show Dr. Al Gross and Dan Sullivan in a dead-heat for Alaska’s junior Senate seat. The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, underscores just how close this race is and indicates that Dr. Gross, a first-time candidate who was previously trailing Sullivan, is clearly gaining momentum following his decisive primary victory last month.

“Alaskans are eager to have an independent voice in the U.S. Senate,” said Dr. Gross. “They’re tired of Yes-Man Dan Sullivan’s brand of hyper-partisan politics. They’re looking for someone who will put Alaskans first and can deliver on the issues they care about—affordable, high-quality healthcare, better jobs and responsible environmental policy that promotes economic growth and respects the integrity of Alaska’s natural splendor. Dan Sullivan’s had six years to get Alaska back on track and he’s failed on all accounts. It’s time for a change.”

The release of this poll comes as the Alaska Senate race gains national attention, with prominent race-callers shifting their rankings in Dr. Gross’ favor. The newest polling backs up what we already know—that this race is among the most competitive in the country and that all eyes should be on Alaska come November.
