Al Gross (I), a leading contender in Alaska’s U.S. House race, dropped out Monday without providing a reason, Alaska Public Radio reports.
“Gross finished in third place in the June 11 special primary to fill the vacancy left by the death of Rep. Don Young. He was on track to be one of the four candidates who would advance to the special general ballot.”
“Instead, the fourth spot on that ballot will go to the next finisher — and that appears to be Republican Tara Sweeney.”
The Anchorage Daily News reports Gross urged his supporters to consider voting instead for Mary Peltola (D) or Sweeney.Save to Favorites
