The race for Lieutenant Governor is vitally important. Alaska's history shows that the Lieutenant Governor has to be ready to become Governor at any time. I have discussed the role of Lieutenant Governor with all three Republican gubernatorial candidates. I have worked well with all of them before. As the only person on the Capitol's 3rd floor the Governor can't fire, I would be fearless in speaking up for the people of Alaska. I would help in the fight with the federal government for our State's rights. Washington has to deal with Alaska's issues on Alaska's terms. I would help Alaska speak with the strongest possible voice. Within the state, I would help people navigate the confusing maze of government and work with the governor and the legislature to promote limited government and defend personal freedoms.
