Alaska U.S. House candidate Gregg Brelsford is switching his affiliation from the GOP to Independent. He announced his party switch in an editorial published by the Anchorage Daily News.
Brelsford is a former Manager of the Bristol Bay Borough and also previously served as an Interim City Manager of Dillingham, Alaska. Among several reasons for his change, he mentions the “Republican Party’s growing effort to compromise election integrity and democracy across the country.”
“On the campaign trail, many people have told me that both the Republican and Democratic parties have gotten off track on concerns that matter to Alaskans. I agree, and like many Alaskans, I no longer feel at home in either party,” wrote Brelsford. “I am still a principled, pragmatic, get-it-done, no-drama, conservative. But now I believe I can best represent the Last Frontier’s independent-spirited Alaskans in Congress as an independent.”
