ANCHORAGE, AK –– Today, four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King endorsed Dr. Al Gross for U.S. Senate. Dr. Al Gross released the following statement regarding Jeff King’s endorsement:

“I am proud to have the endorsement of such an iconic Alaskan sportsman and fierce health care advocate. I remember watching Jeff King compete in the Iditarod and to have his support as we close out this race is truly an honor.” 

Jeff King released the following statement endorsing Dr. Al Gross:

“For the last six years I have seen the most turbulent times in American politics then I could have ever imagined. Attacks on affordable health care, women’s health clinics and political hypocrisy has proven to me that Alaska needs new leadership. 

Dr. Al Gross has worked in health care, and knows that the system is in dyer need of fixing. Al’s health care plan will help bring down costs in Alaska and provide coverage for those who need it most. Al has been a champion for women’s health and will protect reproductive rights. As a fisherman Al knows the pebble mine poses a far greater risk than reward for the people who depend on the fisheries of Bristol Bay. I fully endorse Dr. Al Gross for U.S. Senate because we need more people who will stand for Alaska over corporate interests and will be a champion for the American people. Alaska needs a lead dog in the Senate. Not a lap dog. Please vote for Dr. Al Gross.”
