“The grassroots movement we’ve built shows in our volunteers and team, in our fundraising, and in our polling  — an effort unlike any other Congressional challenger in Alaska,” said Samantha Alden Harris, Galvin’s campaign manager. “We can and we will win this race. Alyse Galvin will be Alaska’s first congresswoman.”

A leader of the grassroots organization Great Alaska Schools, Galvin is mounting a serious challenge to the incumbent. She has an energized volunteer base of 1,120 Alaskans to date. Galvin won the Alaska Democratic Primary, as an Independent, with 54% of the vote against three other candidates, and has raised over $1.8 million dollars without a cent from corporate PACs. Her campaign has hosted town hall style meet-and-greets all across Alaska, from Bethel to Ketchikan and Sitka to Nome.

Her message is clear: I’m listening, I’m present, and I can’t wait to serve all Alaskans. Don Young, unfortunately, is bought and paid for by special interests and corporate money.

Alyse Galvin is a mom, a third-generation Alaskan, a community leader, and a former business owner. A tireless advocate for education, she spent the last five years as a leader of Great Alaska Schools organizing parents, students, educators, and community members to protect public schools from massive budget cuts. In 2017, she led statewide opposition to the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education.

Alyse Galvin is an Independent and the Alaska Democratic Party’s nominee for U.S. Congress. Galvin will face Rep. Don Young in the general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
