Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell visited Ketchikan on Tuesday as part of his campaign for U.S. Senate. He visited the shipyard, attended a Rotary lunch, met with the Ketchikan Young Professionals Network, visited the hospital and was scheduled to attend a meet-and-greet starting at 5 p.m. Tuesday. He also took a few minutes to talk with KRBD’s Leila Kheiry in between a couple of engagements at Cape Fox Lodge. Here is a portion of their conversation.

Treadwell is running in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. His opponents in the primary are Dan Sullivan and Joe Miller. The winner of that primary will face the incumbent Sen. Mark Begich, a Democrat, and independent candidate Bill Walker.
