Alaska GOP Gov. Mike Dunleavy on Thursday accepted former President Donald Trump’s endorsement, which Trump had vowed to rescind if Dunleavy endorses Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
“Please tell the President thank you for the endorsement. With regard to the other issue, please tell the President he has nothing to worry about,” Dunleavy said in a statement referring to Murkowski and put out by Trump.
