JUNEAU — Republican Gov. Sean Parnell clashed with his major rival, independent Bill Walker, on state spending and a gas-line project during a debate in Juneau on Monday.
Parnell also sniped at Walker teaming up with Byron Mallott, who abandoned his Democratic bid for governor to be Walker’s running mate in order to create a ticket deemed to be more competitive with Parnell.
Parnell said voters were disenfranchised by the partnership, which followed the August primary and resulted in the candidates’ initial running mates stepping aside. A judge has upheld the pairing.
