Alaska: Governor makes public relations swing in national conservative media against recall effort

Governor Mike Dunleavy (R) has gone on a nationwide offensive to defend against the recall, which others note that it may be an effort to help raise money for a potential campaign against the recall down the road. The article notes that the effort is unusual, as Dunleavy generally "avoids traveling, public speaking and formal interviews" and has rejected requests to speak from all media in Alaska.

Notably, Alaska has a loophole in its campaign finance laws allowing unlimited donations to recall efforts (Wisconsin has a similar provision).
