Alaska Immigration Lawyer Margaret Stock Picks Up Key Endorsement in U.S. Senate Run

Becky Bohrer, Associated Press, Aug. 19, 2016- "Jeff King, a four-time winner of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, is changing political teams when it comes to Alaska's U.S. Senate race, pulling his endorsement of Republican incumbent Lisa Murkowski and backing independent candidate Margaret Stock.  King earlier this year appeared in a radio ad with two other mushers supporting Murkowski.  But King told The Associated Press on Friday that he has changed his mind and is endorsing Stock.  Stock sees herself as Murkowski's main competition for the general election. King cited as a reason his dissatisfaction with what he sees as the refusal by the state's congressional delegation to stand up to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, whom he calls an embarrassment."
