Here’s a really interesting Senate race that’s ranked in the top ten of competitive Senate races but is flying under the radar a bit, partly because the primary was late: the Alaska senate race where Republican incumbent Dan Sullivan faces a strong Democratic challenger in Al Gross. Let’s raise some money for Gross:

I want a shot at redemption?

Kicked in. Thanks Doug for these postings.
I love that song. Second only to Me and Julio in the Simon oeuvre
@A woman from anywhere (formerly Mohagan):
Thanks for donating!
Will do. Thanks, Doug. What did Balloon Juice raise for the 2018 cycle? I remember being blown away by the amount!
What are the top 10 most competitive races? Anybody have a good link? After a long weekend/mini-vacation I wanna get back to writing postcards next week and would really like to put my energy towards the Senate.
Remember: Alaska is a cheap market. Dollars go a long way here. And if we get the tribes plus the scattered liberals in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau, that might be enough. I want as many as we can get.
Done and thanks again from Montana.
@realbtl: I am so pulling for Bullock and Williams here. Let’s hope Bullock has sufficient coattails for both Williams and Cooney. Although I hope Gianforte gets dragged for the carpetbagger that he is.

@Benw: I was about to type that exact same thing!
That decided me. Ponied up a little for Al Gross.
@Yutsano: The blond coffe woman from the convention is in a Daines ad thanking him for the first cv small business relief bill. Wonder how she feels now.
As of this moment, PostcardsToVoters.org is writing postcards in support of Independent Alyse Galvin, who is running for Alaska’s only House seat. She is Independent but will caucus with Democrats. My understanding is that Postcards To Voters gets addresses of registered Democrats and/or those who voted in Dem primaries, so by writing to support Ms. Galvin, the Democratic turnout should be increased, which should benefit Al Gross.

Great to know.
@DougJ: obvious child, too. All so great
Kinda skeptical about our chances in Alaska – lost Begich in 2014, and lost the independent governor in the last election.
@Yutsano: Apparently you’re the only one on this blog besides me who even knows about Williams. I’ve repeatedly pointed out that she’s competitive & that her winning would flip the MT House delegation (of 1) from red to blue, which in some bizarre possibilities we might find useful if not vital. The response? Crickets. In particular from Doogie J Blegmeister.
By way of correction, Al Gross is an independent. The Democratic Party doesn’t have anyone in the race. Don’t know whether he’s promised to caucus with the Democrats if elected, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he caucuses with the Republicans.
Gross’s web page talks about him being strongly pro-choice and protecting reproductive rights.
There go two miscreants
I chipped in. I have granddaughters (altho not in Alaska) so reproductive choice is a big plus for me.
