Anchorage immigration attorney Margaret Stock said Tuesday that she’s running as an independent against Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
Stock, a retired lieutenant colonel with the U.S. Army Reserves who has spent years arguing that legal immigration bolsters national security, said she was encouraged to run by Alaskans who were unhappy with Murkowski.
“I have a track record of getting things done in Washington, but I do it behind the scenes, which is a good skill for senators to have,” Stock said in a phone interview Tuesday evening. “I work really hard, I know how the government operates, I know how to push the bureaucratic buttons to make things happen and I’m not beholden to any party.”
