Treadwell to announce plans this summer

Apr 23, 2013 -- 10:00am


- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell says he plans to announce this summer whether he will run for U.S. Senate next year. Treadwell tells The Associated Press he is getting an enthusiastic response from donors, members of the public and even other senators whom he described as "looking for a change in leadership in that body." But the Republican, in an email, says he's not sure yet what his decision will be. Treadwell announced last year that he was considering a challenge to first-term Democratic Sen. Mark Begich. Fellow Republican Joe Miller, a tea party favorite during his 2010 run against Sen. Lisa Murkowski, recently announced that he was exploring a run next year, as well.
