Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement endorsing Dr. Al Gross in the Alaska U.S. Senate race:
“Dr. Al Gross is a lifelong Alaskan who understands the unique needs of his state and is building a strong campaign that reflects Alaska’s fierce independence. As a physician, he knows how Alaskans are struggling with the rising costs of health care, and is running to make coverage affordable for all Alaskans, and to protect coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. Al knows what’s right, isn’t afraid to fight for it and we are proud to support his campaign.”
Dr. Al Gross is an orthopedic surgeon, commercial fisherman, and lifelong Alaskan who will fight to protect Alaska’s economy and way of life in the U.S. Senate. Since entering the race, Dr. Gross has earned endorsements from Alaskans across the political spectrum, including the Alaska Democratic Party, and outraised incumbent Senator Dan Sullivan by more than $300,000 last quarter.
