Alaska’s candidates for governor kept it relatively low-key at a one-hour forum Monday in Anchorage where they discussed their plans for crime, oil, the Permanent Fund and more.
There were no vicious attacks at the event, hosted by the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center. No harsh words. No jabs thrown.
All four gubernatorial candidates arrived in suits: former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, a Democrat, former state Sen. Mike Dunleavy, a Republican, incumbent Gov. Bill Walker, an independent, and Libertarian William “Billy” Toien.
