Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Mallott attend the Democratic convention in Talkeetna this weekend

Independent candidate Bill Walker and Democrat Byron Mallott will be a part of the Alaska Democratic Party's 2018 convention in Talkeetna this weekend, May 4-6. The campaign team will host a booth throughout the day on Saturday: with yard signs, sign-up sheets, campaign t-shirts, and bumper stickers. Campaign staff will be on hand to answer questions and help folks get connected. 

Both Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Mallott will attend the 6 pm reception on Saturday evening. The Lt. Governor will outline the team's vision and priorities for the second term during his remarks at the 7 pm dinner. 

Governor Walker said, "We're gearing up for a packed campaign schedule this summer, I'm ready to go anywhere and talk to anyone who is willing to have productive conversations about how we can continue to strengthen our fiscal future and grow our economy. Byron and I are humbled by and grateful for the past support of Alaska's Democrats and we're looking forward to continuing the conversation with Alaskans from all over the state this weekend."  

The trip to Talkeetna comes on the back of a series of strong polling returns, with Governor Walker posting his highest approval rating since the beginning of 2016, according to quarterly studies by Alaska Survey Research.
