Ketchikan, Alaska - Former Governor Tony Knowles made his first
stop in Ketchikan since officially kicking off his campaign for
the United States Senate. More than 75 people attended a community
gathering at the Ted Ferry Civic Center Wednesday evening to
hear the presumptive Democratic nominee talk about the issues
that he says matters in this campaign for the United States Senate:
creating jobs, better education, affordable health care, a strong
national defense, protecting our personal freedoms, and the experience
and leadership to make that happen.
